(LIN) – Former Sen. Rick Santorum, R-Pa., stormed to a win in Saturday's Louisiana primary, but the math suggests he'll need to win 70 percent of the remaining delegates to come away with the nomination.
Meanwhile, former Gov. Mitt Romney, R-Mass., needs to win 45 percent of the remaining delegates.
Those statistics don't appear to matter to the Santorum camp.
"I don't agree with the delegate math of Romney campaign," he said Sunday. "They called Florida a winner-take-all…the numbers are wrong…that's a lot of bad math," Santorum said Sunday.
With almost 50 percent of the vote, Santorum came away with 10 delegate votes Saturday night putting him at 273 delegate votes so far.
Romney came away with 5, bringing his total to 568 delegates. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, R-Ga., is in third place with 135 delegates and Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, rounds off the pack with 50 delegates.
The foursome now prep for state contests in Maryland, Wisconsin and the District of Columbia on April 3.
Plouffe talks energy
In the midst of Santorum's win, senior White House adviser David Plouffe was dispatched to communicate President Barack Obama's message on various domestic issues.
With gas prices climbing, energy has garnered the most attention on the campaign trail. Obama maintains that the Republican approach to energy is one-dimensional and solely relies on increasing domestic oil production to alleviate high gas prices. "We are drilling all over the place right now," Obama said in a recent stump speech. "That's not the challenge. That's not the problem."
Critics argue otherwise.
"This administration's record speaks for itself," said Thomas J. Pyle of the American Institute of Energy. "For more than three years, President Obama has implemented a three-part strategy: delay, deny and deceive."
Plouffe went on the offensive Sunday on Fox News.
"What the president's been saying, is we have to do everything we can to produce oil, gas, but that's only part of the answer," he said. "We also have to move quickly to wind, solar, bio fuels."
Plouffe also defended the White House's plans to shelve the Keystone pipeline , an oil pipeline stretching from Canada to Mexico that would create almost 20,000 jobs. The administration said it didn't have enough time to address concerns over environmental implications.
"Republicans in Nebraska had a problem," Plouffe said. "The company is going to be submitting a new pipeline route," he added.
The White House is now pushing for a smaller version of the pipeline project.
