Washington, Mar 25 (ANI): Former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum has won the Republican presidential primary in Louisiana.
Santorum won 49 percent of the vote, compared to 26 percent for former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, 17 percent for former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and six percent for Texas Republican Ron Paul.
"People in Louisiana came through in a big way," Santorum said in Wisconsin, where he watched the election results.
"We're still fighting. ... I'm not running as the conservative candidate for president. I am the conservative candidate," he added.
According to Fox News, Santorum has now won 11 states, while Romney has won 20 states or territories.
Gingrich has won two states, while Paul has not won any.
Romney has, however, amassed more than twice as many delegates as Santorum nationwide and is nearly halfway to the 1,144 delegates needed to clinch the Republican presidential nomination. (ANI)
