Ron Paulâ€™s presidential campaign today claimed victory in this weekendâ€™s district caucuses in Louisiana, boldly predicting that the Texas congressman will be in control of the stateâ€™s delegation to the Republican National Convention.
The Paul campaign said the candidate won â€œfour and a half of six congressional district caucuses, securing 111 of 150 â€” or 74 percent â€” of (the) delegatesâ€ allocated as part of Saturdayâ€™s district caucus process.
â€œRon Paulâ€™s victory shows his delegate-attainment strategy is working and demonstrates that the media and Washington pundits are underestimating his influence in the nominating process,â€ said Ron Paul 2012 national campaign manager John Tate.
Tate predicted that â€œthe Louisiana win forecasts a prominent role for Ron Paulâ€ at the Republican National Convention in Tampa. â€œIt also signals that the convention will feature a spirited discussion over whether conservatism will triumph over the status quo, all in relation to the end game of defeating President Obama.â€
The Paul campaign claimed victory in Louisianaâ€™s Congressional Districts 1, 2, 5 and 6, and a split decision in District 4.
â€œYesterdayâ€™s result shows the changing dynamic among grassroots conservative activists dedicated to promoting a Republican platform that adheres to the Constitutional values Dr. Paul represents,â€ Paulâ€™s Louisiana state director, Pete Chamberlain, said today. â€œBack-room dealing and insider politics are no match for the grassroots enthusiasm that is the hallmark of the Ron Paul campaign. Yesterday, Ron Paulâ€™s dedicated Louisiana supporters showed what passionate, persistent activism can achieve when centered around a consistent message of freedom and prosperity.â€
GOP presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney now has the support of Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and most of the partyâ€™s establishment leadership, so he is sure to receive a significant number of at-large or automatic delegates.
