Rick Santorum asks Louisiana GOP to make sure 'bona fide' supporters represent him in Tampa

Published: Thursday, May 31, 2012, 8:30 PM

Washington - Rick Santorum Thursday sent Louisiana GOP Chairman Roger Villere a list of 20 "bona fide Santorum supporters" who he would like to see Saturday's Republican State Convention in Shreveport name to fill the ten delegate and ten alternate slots he won in his overwhelming victory in the state's March 24 primary. Santorum's letter was an effort to forestall any move by Ron Paul supporters, who, by virtue of their triumph  in the party's sparsely attended April 28 caucuses, will control events in Shreveport, to name Paul loyalists to fill the Santorum slots at the national convention in Tampa.

"It is important that the Louisiana Republican State Convention select legitimate Santorum delegates and alternate delegates for the ten slots earned via a taxpayer funded statewide election and honor the results of a contest that drew 186,410 registered Republican voters," the former Pennsylvania senator wrote Villere and members of the state party executive committee.

Noting that he won 49 percent of the primary vote, Santorum wrote, "Though I have suspended the campaign, I have no intention of releasing delegates before the Republican National Convention."

Ron Paul campaign statement on Louisiana GOP convention

Lake Jackson, Texas - The Ron Paul campaign condemns the unfortunate activities that took place at the Louisiana Republican State Convention in Shreveport.

However, we also wish to highlight and applaud the fact that the convention ended on a high note reflective of the cooperation all Republicans wish to see toward the mutual aim of defeating President Obama in the November general election.
