Hillary Clinton was looking for her next victory since her big wins on Super Tuesday and she got it by sweeping Louisiana’s primary on March 5. She beat Bernie Sanders by a commanding 50+ points. Way to roll Hillary!
Can anything stop Hillary Clinton, 68, when it comes to her wild popularity with southern voters? She trounced Bernie Sanders, 74, in Louisiana by a commanding 70.1% to 21.7% victory. After sweeping many southern states on March 1, she seems to pretty much have a lock on the region and her victory in the Pelican State is helping keep her momentum going.
Hillary has been owning the south, especially on Super Tuesday where she took home Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia. She had already taken home South Carolina’s primary by a sweeping margin on Feb. 27. Hillary was projected to top Bernie in the polls by as much as 40 percent going in to Louisiana’s primary, making her one tough contender, even though Bernie still had a smaller but passionate base in the state.
Hillary got some early but significant support on Mar. 4 when Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards announced he’d cast his ballot for her in an early voting session. He didn’t go in to sweeping details about why he chose the former Secretary of State and First Lady, over the Vermont Senator.

However, he did meet with former President Bill Clinton, 69, at the governor’s mansion in Baton Rouge the previous evening after Hillary’s husband spoke at a campaign rally for his wife that day. The governor told reporters the two had coffee and cookies and talked more about other subjects than the presidential race, but we know how persuasive Bill can be so we’re sure his visit definitely helped sway the state’s leader’s vote.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Hillary will ultimately win the Democratic presidential nomination?
