Buddy Roemer No Longer Running for President
(WASHINGTON) -- Buddy Roemer, who few knew was running for president, announced on Thursday that he is dropping out of the race.
A former congressman and governor of Louisiana, Roemer staged the long shot of long-shot bids for the White House as an independent candidate. His main issues were sticking it to Wall Street and tax reform.
Faced with the impossibility of getting the nomination from either of the country’s two main parties, Roemer sought support from the third-party group Americans Elect, which folded up shop recently after promising that it would change the way candidates get elected.
On his website Thursday, Roemer said that he’s done.
“Today, I am no longer a candidate for President of the United States,” he said at the beginning of a statement.
Now the question for Roemer is whom will he endorse?
Carlos Sierra, his spokesman, told ABC News, ”At this point no other candidate has endorsed Gov. Roemer’s reform principles, so no.”
