Former Gov. Buddy Roemer of Louisiana, currently making a dark-horse bid for the Republican presidential nomination, is looking to reach out to the Occupy Wall Street movement while speculation increases that he will launch a third party bid for the White House.
"Money in politics has created institutional corruption,” Roemer said in a statement released on Thursday. “Both parties are guilty of taking the big check and are bought by Wall Street. My campaign is the only one that speaks out against this and I look forward to the day lobbyists are not allowed to donate to campaigns. Wall Street grew to be a source of capital for growing companies. It has become something else: a facilitator for greed and for the selling of American jobs. Enough already!" . . .
As their candidate’s path to the Republican nomination becomes increasingly difficult, this week the Roemer camp threw out signs that he is considering launching a third party or independent bid for the White House. Carlos Sierra, Roemer’s campaign manager, left the door open to the possibility in an interview with the Daily Caller this week . . .
