Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum won the Louisiana Primary Saturday evening, keeping his campaign with an argument to continue going on in the GOP presidential race against frontrunner Mitt Romney.

The large victory in Louisiana was expected for Santorum, who led all polls throughout the run up to Saturday’s vote. The race was called with just a handful of precincts reporting.

However, the dynamics of the race still heavily favor Romney, who will come in second ahead of Newt Gingrich. Rep. Ron Paul (R) will finish in last place.
