Former LA Gov Buddy Roemer To Jump Into Presidential Race Thursday
“We’re ready to move forward,” said Roemer’s newly-minted campaign director, Carlos Sierra. “He’s one of the first candidates to file his exploratory committee, and now we’re one of the last, if not the last, to make it official.”
A former Democratic member of Congress who switched to the GOP in 1991, midway through his only term as governor, Roemer has gained little traction since launching his exploratory committee in March. He’s rarely been higher than 1 percent in polls, and been shut out of all televised debates, offering him few chances to introduce himself to voters.
He has also languished in fundraising. According to his most recent quarterly filing with the Federal Election Commission, Roemer raised just $41,000 — and $10,000 came from his own pocket.Click here for reuse options!
