Break out the gumbo and strike up the jazz band because Donald Trump just won the Louisiana Republican presidential primary. This is his first Mar. 5 win against Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and John Kasich.
It’s been a month since Mardi Gras, but Donald Trump was in the mood to party in the Big Easy. Donald will leave Louisiana with more than just beads, as he won the state’s Republican primary! Finally, the front runner got his first Super Saturday victory.
“Union, Justice and Confidence” is Louisiana’s state motto, and the Louisianan Republicans are confident that Donald will be the next President of the United States of America. After the polls closed in the “Child of the Mississippi,” Donald was crowned the winner with 47.5% of the GOP votes to Ted’s 24.3% and Marco’s 18.8%. Donald lost Kansas and Maine to Ted the same day, so he’s probably thrilled to finally clinch one.
Donald Trump might have to trade his “New York Values” for a house in Baton Rogue. Before this vote, Trump was leading with 41% support, according to The Hill. However, despite Trump sweeping five of the six states in the “SEC Primary” during Super Tuesday, some doubted that he could take Louisiana. After all, the state’s Republicans are more socially conservative and would have similar values to Ted Cruz, the senator from neighboring Texas.
“We’re flying a bit in the dark,” Michael Henderson, director of the LSU Public Policy Research Lab, told The Advocate, ahead of the vote. “We just don’t have any real data on Louisiana.” Well, we now have some results!
Will Mitt Romney, 68, give another speech after these results? When Donald took won South Carolina, New Hampshire and Nevada, it looked like the GOP was throwing its support behind the ex-Celebrity Apprentice star. This had Mitt worried for the future. “If we Republicans choose Donald Trump as our nominee, the prospects for a safe and prosperous future are greatly diminished,” Mitt said, before unleashing one insult after another.
Who do you think will win the GOP nomination, HollywoodLifers?
