Gov. Roemer Gaining Ground In Iowa and New Hampshire

Manchester, NHFor the second time in as many weeks, Governor Charles E. “Buddy” Roemer has reached two percent in a statewide poll of likely Republican voters. The most recent poll, released yesterday by the independent Public Policy Polling, interviewed voters in the important state of Iowa, which will hold its first-in-the-nation caucus on January 3rd. Two weeks ago, Governor Roemer polled at two percent in New Hampshire, where he was tied with Senator Santorum, was beating Texas Governor Rick Perry, and was only a single point behind Congresswoman Michele Bachmann. The fact that Roemer is polling at two percent, with very little money available to his campaign and without having been invited to participate in a national debate, means his message is resonating with the voters regarding money in politics and the need for true reform. Imagine what the numbers might look like if Buddy were able to be on stage to debate.
“What do these polls say about the voters in Iowa and New Hampshire?” said Buddy Roemer. “It says they’ve looked at the field, just as I have, and they don’t see a President either.”
“I am pleased to have been included in the latest Iowa GOP poll,” Roemer continued. “Once the pollsters include me, I can work towards getting into the debates, and then we can shake this race up. Republicans are uninspired by their current choices, and I don’t blame them. Whether Iowans and Granite Staters vote for me because they are concerned about the economy, trade imbalances with China, or just want to cast a protest vote against this weak field of inexperienced candidates, the effect will be the same, to make this race much more interesting.”
A recent Boston Globe editorial apparently agrees that Governor Roemer would add to the debate, saying that “Roemer is capable of bringing fresh energy to the long-running GOP show: It’s even possible to imagine him catching fire for at least a moment, the way the tag team of Trump-Bachmann-Perry-Cain-Gingrich have all taken turns as Mitt Romney’s sparring partner.”

Governor Buddy Roemer is a four-term Congressman and former Governor of Louisiana.
