The polls are now closed in Louisiana, and Fox News can project that Rick Santorum will win by a comfortable margin, leaving Mitt Romney to finish second, Newt Gingrich third and Ron Paul fourth.

Santorum did well with evangelical and conservative voters in Louisiana, as he has in other Deep South states. But tonight he also edged out Romney among self-described moderate voters and those who consider the economy the most important issue, according to Fox News exit polls

It’s a solid victory for Santorum, though Romney remains the national front-runner. The former Massachusetts governor has 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.

 

There were 20 delegates up for grabs tonight in Louisiana, although it is not yet clear how those delegates, which are allocated proportionately, will be divided among the candidates. It does appear that Santorum will win a plurality of the delegates.

 

Santorum has now won 11 states, while Romney has won 21 states or territories. Gingrich has won two states, while Paul has not won any.
