One of the GOP candidates still seeking the party’s Presidential nomination has dropped out of the race to seek an alternative party bid. As we already know, former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson dropped out of the GOP race to seek the Libertarian Party nomination. Now another former GOP candidate is following Johnson’s lead.
No, it’s not Ron Paul – who has been repeatedly asked about his Third-Party options. This one is also a former governor. It is former Louisiana Governor Buddy Roemer.
Charles Elson ”Buddy” Roemer III will be seeking the Reform Party nomination. Roemer was was a US Representative from 1981-1988, and was the governor of Louisiana from 1988-1992.
Roemer is no stranger to switching parties – as he changed from Democrat to Republican in March of 1991 while serving as Governor.
