Buddy Roemer tira la toalla



Sí, puede que lo hayamos olvidado,  pero el ex Gobernador de Louisiana seguía siendo oficialmente candidato a la Presidencia. El ex demócrata convertido en republicano reformista se había declarado candidato independiente después de fracasar en su intento de conseguir la nominación republicana con una plataforma populista de denuncia de los grupos de intereses especiales que dominan la política. Sin dinero e incapaz de atraer la atención de los medios y el público, hoy se ha dado por vencido.

USA Today:


Buddy Roemer has ended his presidential campaign -- again.
The former Louisiana governor and Democrat-turned-Republican said on his website that he's giving up his bid for the White House as an independent. In February, he dropped his GOP campaign.
"After 17 months of a wonderful campaign, the lack of ballot access in all 50 states makes the quest impossible for now," Roemer said, vowing to continue his fight against special interests in politics.
Roemer, who was never invited to any of the major televised GOP primary debates, had a longer than long shot chance. He gained a following on Twitter with his posts about the dangers of big money in campaigns.
