Scene Saturday at Romney election night party in Columbia, S.C.

COLUMBIA, South Carolina — There’s wine and beer for sale in the press filing room at Mitt Romney’s Election Night party on the state fairgrounds, but most reporters were too busy finding a space to work to make a purchase.

The space set aside for supporters is smaller than what was set aside in Iowa and New Hampshire, but the password to the wireless network remains optimistic, “Victory2012.”

Romney initially won Iowa, later losing by 34 votes in the final tally. He won New Hampshire, too, and had been seen as sailing to an easy victory in South Carolina earlier in the week, but now trails in the polls.
