Former Louisiana governor and Congressman Buddy Roemer Joins Reform Party

Governor Roemer has left the Republican Party and sought nomination for president of the United States – under the banner of the Reform Party.

The GOP virtually shunned Gov. Roemer this entire primary debate season, not inviting him to any of that party’s debates for reasons, such as he had not raised enough money and did not rank high enough in the polls (though at one time he out-polled Texas Gov. Rick Perry in New Hampshire, who was invited to the debate in that state, and every other debate while he was running).

Could it be that because Gov. Roemer refuses to take PAC money or donations over $100. Much like Ronald Reagan, when asked why he had left the Democrats to join the Republicans responded “I didn’t leave the Democrats, they left me,” the Republicans have left Gov. Roemer – and many, many others – and the Democrats have too, for that matter. The Reform Party is the ideal home for Gov. Roemer, because its platform so closely mirrors his own.

In addition to seeking the Reform Party’s nomination, Gov. Roemer is trying to become the candidate for Americans Elect – which is not a actually a political party, but a grassroots movement committed to mobilizing the country to “pick a president, not a party.”
