A day after he officially announced his candidacy for the Presidency, Senator John McCain came within a few votes of former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and California Congressman Duncan Hunter in a straw poll held in Spartanburg County, South Carolina.

Out of about 800 ballots cast and 81 out of 92 precincts reporting in this conservative county, Giuliani received 158 votes, Hunter 152 votes, and McCain came in third with 116 votes.

Other candidates also included in the poll were: Senator Sam Brownback, 83 votes, Mitt Romney, 80 votes, and Mike Huckabee, 21 votes.
