John McCain Wins Louisiana Caucus
ARLINGTON, VA -- The Republican Party of Louisiana today announced that John McCain won the Louisiana Caucus held yesterday, January 22nd. On the heels of his win in South Carolina last weekend, victory in Louisiana is another indication of John McCain's growing momentum and of the fact that John McCain is the consistent conservative choice capable of winning the GOP stronghold of the South this November.
John McCain's Louisiana Chair, former Governor Buddy Roemer, issued the following statement regarding the results of the Louisiana Caucus:
"Last night's results go to show that John McCain is the best hope of
conservatives here in Louisiana and across the country. The people of Louisiana
know that actions speak louder than words, and that's why they chose John
McCain over Mitt Romney. He is the only candidate with a long-held and
consistent record of defending life, of protecting our national security,
and of promoting pro-growth economic principles that benefit hard-working
American families. John McCain is quickly emerging as the consensus candidate
in the Republican race and the only conservative who can win this November."
