Baton Rouge, LA –Governor Buddy Roemer issued the following statement concerning the Americans Elect nomination process:
Many media outlets are calling the visionary organization “dead,” “a failure,” or “ahead of it’s time.” I disagree with all of these assessments. What Americans Elect has done for our country is revolutionary. It is my sincere hope that they continue on their mission of putting forth a credible candidate to face the bought candidates – Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. The pundits must understand that radical change such as this does not happen over night or without growing pains. The American people are hungry for reform and both parties are not providing it because they are too busy fighting like school children.
My latest polling has me at 7% nationally prior to selecting a vice president, raising much money, or getting much media attention. If I am the nominee for Americans Elect, I will be a factor in this race.
