A few remaining notes on the Louisiana caucus, after hearing from a few delegates and a few aspiring delegates…
1) There is a bit of grumbling between the pro-life uncommitted and the McCain camp, as some PLU folks find McCain unacceptable, and feel like the overlap between the PLU slate and the McCain slate has been overstated in some reports. Several PLU folks wrote in to say that yes, they would have voted Thompson, and that if he had remained a candidate would have had a strong showing.
2) There are provisional ballots that still need to be sorted out – folks who voted, but it wasn’t clear if they had registered as a Republican before the November 30 deadline. There are claims that the verification list was outdated and missed people who registered right before the deadline. Some Ron Paul folks think that enough of their folks voted provisionally to change the order of finish.
3) This is only half the game; the other half is on the state’s primary on February 9.
4) One of my readers asks if the Uncommitted who finished first in Louisiana is the same Uncommitted who came within 15 points of Hillary in Michigan. Wise guy.
