Parnell Wins Democratic Primary Despite Controversy

(Columbia, SC)  --  A candidate who ignored calls to drop out is celebrating a victory.  

Archie Parnell won yesterday's Democratic primary for the Fifth Congressional District after he admitted last month to abusing his ex-wife more than 40 years ago.  

That led some staff members to quit, and some politicians to pull their endorsements and call for him to quit the race.  

Parnell tells CNN his win shows you don't have to be defined by your worst mistake.
