Santorum Wins Louisiana Primary – Election Results

MANDEVILLE, La.—Rick Santorum won the Louisiana Republican presidential primary on Saturday, as voters in this conservative, Southern state decided they weren’t ready to coalesce around front-runner Mitt Romney.

Preliminary exit-poll results showed Mr. Santorum winning with his most dominant performance yet this year among conservatives and blue-collar voters and getting robust support from nearly all types of people, according to the Associated Press.

Mr. Santorum was winning the votes of nearly half of conservatives, and just over half of those without college degrees—a measure of blue-collar voters.

But the former Pennsylvania senator’s victory will give him only a modest boost to his efforts to blunt Mr. Romney’s push toward the nomination. Only 20 delegates were at stake, and they may be divided among several candidates. Mr. Romney holds a lead of 300 delegates over Mr. Santorum, according to the AP.
