The Louisiana Caucuses were today. Still haven't gotten any official results, but most of what I am reading says Paul won most of the delegates. Results should be coming any time now.

(The delegates picked today go to the state convention in June which will then pick delegates to the national convention.)

When do the results officially come in?

Just came in. I didn't even read them yet.

http://lagop.com/2012/04/preliminary-caucus-results/

http://lagop.com/2012/04/louisiana-republican-party-announces-official-slates-and-ballots/ for which slates contain which delegates

District 1 - Paul 25/25 and 12/12

District 2 - Paul 25/25 and 9/9 of the slate filed 12 of the alternate spots.

District 3 - Romney 25/25

Someone just posted elsewhere, Paul won 4 districts, Romney won 1 district, and 1 was split.

So Ron Paul actual won half a state? Santorum won their primary.

I could be wrong but it comes down to whether Santorum keeps his delegates since he dropped out or if they are released in which case they will most likely go to Romney. If they stay with Santorum, Paul has a plurality. If they are released to Romney, then Romney has a plurality. There are also a few at large delegates including the state chair and national committee man and woman which are almost surely Romney delegates.

Just realized this is the first time I ever voted in anything presidential related and my guy won.

Well, I assume that this counts more than the primary since it seems not to have counted for delegates and this did.

I think I have this all figured out.

20 from the primary
Candidate gets a percentage of the 20 based on the primary results, with a minimum of 25%.
Santorum gets 10 delegates from the primary (49%) and Romney gets 5 (27%). The other 5 are unbound and will be determined at the state convention.

18 (3 from each of the 6 congressional districts)
(Each district gets 25 delegates to the state convention where they will determine the 3 delegates to the national convention for their district.)
Paul swept 4 of the 6, Romney took 1 of 6, and they split 1 of 6.
Paul gets 12, Romney gets 3, and they'll split the other 3. (Paul took 11 of the 25, so it sounds like Paul will get 1 and Romney will get 2 from that one. Not sure how that will work.) Paul has 111 of 150 state delegates.

3 are the state chairman, national committeeman, and national committeewomen. 1 has already committed to Romney and the other two probably will.

The 5 uncommitted from the primary will be determined at the state convention. These probably all go to Paul.

There are 5 more delegates to be determined by the executive committee. These probably all go to Romney.

Assuming any unbound delegates not determined by the state delegates go to Romney, We probably end up with (out of a total of 46):
Santorum - 10 (all bound)
Paul - 18
Romney - 18 (5 bound)
