Two time loser Buddy Roemer to announce candidacy
He’s a Harvard Graduate and a businessman so that’s OK. He’s been a member of both parties, a Democrat Republican so to speak. He’s a Methodist, if that means anything.
“Former Louisiana Gov. Buddy Roemer (R) will announce Thursday he will explore a bid for president, according to National Journal. Earlier this year, Roemer said he was considering a 2012 campaign. Originally a Democrat, Roemer became a Republican in 1991 and went on to lose the gubernatorial primary to former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke”
