WASHINGTON – Tonight, Reince Priebus, the Republican National Committee chairman, released the following statement congratulating Rick Santorum and criticizing President Barack Obama. 

"Congratulations to Rick Santorum on winning the Louisiana primary tonight.  I applaud all of our candidates for working to make Barack Obama a one-term president," Priebus said.

"This week, President Obama reminded us yet again of why America so desperately needs a change in direction. As gas prices skyrocket, he has absolutely no energy plan—just plans for strategically timed political photo-ops like Thursday's in Oklahoma.

"Friday was the second anniversary of ObamaCare, but the president kept silent on his signature law because Americans know it's a failure. Health care is more expensive, government spending is increasing, and unelected bureaucrats have the ability to deny care to seniors.

"It's clearer than ever that we must end Obamanomics and ObamaCare before they destroy the American Dream.

"Unlike Democrats, Republicans support policies that lower taxes and rein in the growth of government. Only by returning to free market principles can we change the course of our country. Only by electing a Republican to the White House can we end the failures of the current administration.

"The electoral momentum is clearly on the GOP side. Today's primary has added to that enthusiasm, which we will ride to victory on Election Day."
