Buddy Roemer Bids Goodbye To Presidential Bid
He was the former Governor of Louisiana, and he wanted to be the next president of the United States, but Charles "Buddy" Roemer has decided it is time to end his bid for the presidency. It was a campaign that received some traction from the media in Louisiana, but rarely made any major ripples in the mainstream media.
Roemer served on term as Louisiana's governor, and he also served as a congressman. He sent out a written statement yesterday saying the campaign was coming to an end. "I am no longer a candidate for President of the United States. After 17 months of a wonderful campaign, the lack of ballot access in all 50 states makes the quest impossible for now," Roemer stated.
Former governor Roemer was seeking the GOP nomination for President of the United States, but with very little media attention, and never an invitation to a debate, he had little chance of sharing his platform with the country. His poll numbers were small.
After not getting attention for his bid with Republican Party, he then looked to get redemption through Americans Elect, a nonpartisan group pushing for a third-party candidate. Roemer was not saved with this group either as their members actually shut down their nomination process after they said they couldn't find a candidate that met the standards of their platform.
