Former Govs Edwards, Blanco, and Roemer Give Talk at Loyola
Fresh off of the announcement that he is running for Congress, Edwin Edwards is joining fellow former govs Kathleen Blanco and past opponent Buddy Roemer for a talk at Loyola this Wednesday, March 26, at 7:30 p.m.. “One Louisiana, Three Perspectives” will take place in the Louis J. Roussel Performance Hall, on the university’s main campus.
Four Former Govs to Speak at LSU
Edwin Edwards is taking some time off from his reality tv career and getting back to his political roots. EWE and three of his fellow former governors are speaking at LSU this Wednesday, and they’ll discuss the progress (and occasional digressions) of state politics throughout the past 40 years.
Today in New Orleans 11.27.12
This Tuesday, see a former governor debate a Tulane professor an MSNBC host, dance to great brass on Oak, or hang out in the Marigny for Meschiya Lake. On this day in 1982, Tulane’s football team defeated LSU in a game that marked the Green Wave’s first Baton Rouge victory in 34 years.
Buddy Roemer to Debate Melissa Harris-Perry
For those that already miss Big Bird, binders full of women and horses and bayonets, Tulane Hillel is offering a return to debate season this week. On Tuesday night, the organization hosts a debate between former gov and presidential candidate Buddy Roemer, and Tulane prof/MSNBC host Melissa Harris Perry.
Today in New Orleans 10.24.12
There’s a little something for everyone this hump day, with David Sedaris at Tulane, free music in Lafayette Square, and even a live talk show on St. Claude. On this day in our state’s history, Buddy Roemer III beat three-term Governor Edwin Edwards in the 1987 Gubernatorial Election.
Buddy Roemer Ends Presidential Campaign
Because he had to do it at some point, Buddy Roemer ended his ill-fated presidential campaign today. The former Louisiana governor leaves behind a year of getting shut out of debates, getting called grandpa and winning but not winning a third party ticket. But, on the bright side, he doesn't have any debt.
Buddy Roemer Tops Americans Elect Primary, Doesn't Win
As usual, Buddy Roemer has enough attention and credibility to knock on the door, but he doesn't have the numbers to cross the threshold. Virtually mirroring his frequent GOP debate denial, the former Louisiana governor is sitting atop the polls of the Americans Elect presidential primary, which has been seeking to put a third major candidate on the November ballot that was nominated directly by voters. But, with the voting over, Roemer lacks the minimum number of votes required to become this grassroots movement's candidate.
Buddy Roemer Bows Out of Republican Race
Unike seemingly every other Republican presidential candidate, Buddy Roemer never mounted a surge. Since the former Louisiana governor wasn't invited to any debates, the attendant media attention that coupled a burst in the polls would've helped him more than most. So, with another debate looming and Stephen Colbert running in front of him in one poll, Roemer is hatching his escape plan from the GOP race, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Buddy Gets a Bite
Amid all the talk of going to the moon, self-deporting and candidates named Romney and Gingrich, coverage of the Republican presidential campaign has been bereft of Buddy. But amid all his complaints that he can't get a space on the debate stage, Roemer will be happy to note that he got a lengthy Internet profile full of requisite snark in GQ today. Writer Marin Cogan catches up with the former La. gov before the Florida primary, and calls Roemer "Pro-Life, Anti-Big Money, Pro-Awesome." Read it here.
Roemer Recount in Iowa?
Amid all the Santorum and Newt-ered quotes, it's easy to forget Buddy Roemer is running for president. In this week's Iowa caucuses, the ex La. gov even got some votes. But now there's question about just how many. Even though Rick Santorum doesn't care, New York Times human political calculator Nate Silver has been looking into potential problems with the Iowa vote tally that would demand a recount if it were a real election and not a strange and antiquated caucus. Turns out, a precinct may have bemiscounted, giving Roemer six less votes than the 31 votes he got credit for in the initial tally. Every vote counts, Buddy!
