Buddy Roemer is the former Governor of Louisiana, but is now running for President and is hoping to secure the nomination of the Americans Elect party. He discusses some of his difficulties in picking a running mate in this article.
“We’re looking at 23 different people to have as a running mate. Under the rules of the Americans Elect unity ticket we have to pick a Democrat or Independent,” said Roemer, who has previously indicated that the American people will be “shocked, pleased and surprised” by his choice.
“I won’t make that announcement until I win or lose this round of Americans Elect,” said Roemer, who will turn 69 (23 times 3) on Oct. 4.
The article notes that Roemer has received matching funds and is a frequent guest of “Morning Joe” on MSNBC.
