Santorum Hopes For Boost With La. Win

March 25, 2012 by staff 

Santorum Hopes For Boost With La. Win, Rick Santorum won Louisiana’s Republican primary on Saturday, according to the Associated Press, proving again that he has major appeal among the party’s conservative, southern base.

But with just 20 delegates at stake, the Louisiana win is unlikely to change the narrative of the GOP nominating contest, in which Mitt Romney maintains a commanding lead in the delegate race.

Santorum walked away with at least eight of the 20 delegates up for grabs, while Romney came in second, according to CNN. Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul were third and fourth and didn’t win any delegates.

Heading into Saturday, Mitt Romney had more than double the number of delegates than Santorum had in their quest to win the Republican nomination. Per the Associated Press, Romney had 563 delegates, compared to Santorum’s 263. Newt Gingrich had just 135 and Ron Paul had only 53.

In a conference call last week, Santorum’s campaign argued the numbers are actually closer than reported because news organizations have not taken into account possible delegate shifts at state and county conventions.
