La. GOP Elects National Convention Delegates
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Louisiana's Republican Party leaders have chosen delegates to the party's national presidential nominating convention in Tampa.
Thirty of the state's 46 delegates were selected Saturday at the state GOP convention in Shreveport.
Ten are supporters of Rick Santorum, who won Louisiana's Republican primary contest earlier this year. Five support Mitt Romney, who will be the party nominee for the fall presidential election. One delegate is for Ron Paul. Another 14 delegates weren't bound to a specific candidate, but the state Republican Party said those were expected to support Romney.
There were no nominations for 13 of the 16 remaining positions. The party says that was done to allow talks with Paul supporters who refused to participate in the convention.
