Early Word on Louisiana Caucus Results
I am told, by a campaign source, that the Louisiana caucuses have McCain in first, Ron Paul a close second, and Romney in third. Not confirmed yet.
UPDATE: A dramatically different report here, which has uncommitted "pro-life/pro-family" slate sweeping.
Remember, this is to select delegates to the state convention, who pick the delegates to the national convention. The state has a separate presidential primary, on Feb. 9. If a candidate gets 50 percent +1 — not unthinkable if Florida and Super Duper Tuesday narrow the field some — then that candidate automatically gets 20 of the state's 47 delegates. If no candidate meets that threshold, then the state convention selects almost all of the state's delegates.
