BATON ROUGE – The Louisiana Democratic Party tonight released a statement congratulating Hillary Clinton on her victory in the Louisiana presidential preference primary. Both the Clinton campaign and the supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders ran robust, enthusiastic operations in the state and worked hard to turn out Democratic voters.

“Congratulations to Hillary Clinton, to her supporters across the state, and to her entire campaign operation,” said Sen. Karen Carter Peterson, chairwoman of the Louisiana Democratic Party. “Both of our major Democratic candidates ran vital, engaging campaigns in Louisiana. The race goes on, but the people of Louisiana have made their voices heard. We look forward to coming together this fall, and to standing united behind our nominee.”

The state party will award delegates to both candidates, in proportion to voting totals in each congressional district. Delegate allocation totals will be formally announced in a forthcoming statement from the party, contingent upon the Secretary of State’s final certification of the results.
