‘Buddy’ Roemer announces end to GOP presidential campaign
Republican presidential contender Charles “Buddy” Roemer is no more. The former congressman and Louisiana governor plans to announce tomorrow that he is abandoning his GOP campaign after being excluded from a string of debates. Instead, he is employing a scattershot approach, seeking both the nomination of the Reform Party and the direct nomination of Americans Elect, which will produce a ticket through an online vote in June. “I have decided to take my campaign directly to the American people,” Roemer said.
