Buddy Roemer 2012 Exploratory Committee

Former Governor of Louisiana and former U.S. Congressman Buddy Roemer of Louisiana began a movement for the 2012 Republican Party nomination for President of the United States shortly following the 2010 midterm elections.

Although he was rarely mentioned as a possible candidate, Roemer stopped short of a full-fledged candidacy before the beginning of the year. He had indicated in January 2011 that he was considering running for President of the United States.

Roemer has filed his organization with the Federal Elections Commission as an exploratory committee, and announced the organization in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on March 3, 2011.

Early stages

Exploratory committee

In January 2011, Roemer publicly stated that he was considering a bid for the U.S. presidency in 2012. On March 3, 2011, he announced the formation of an exploratory committee to prepare for a possible run for the 2012 presidential nomination of the Republican Party. Roemer stressed that campaign finance reform would be a key issue in his campaign.
