Roemer Hosts March Madness Contest

While the interminable battle for the Republican nomination continues, Buddy Roemer will be participating in one competition Americans care about: March Madness. The Independent candidate for president, known for refusing campaign donations over $100, will be going head to head with NCAA hoops fans, announcing that supporters can face off against his bracket through a competition hosted on Yahoo. The winner will receive a lunch with Roemer. “College basketball enthusiasts all over America are engulfed in the frenzy of March Madness, and the Roemer for President campaign is no different,” read a letter posted on Roemer’s website. “In between spreading my message of ending politics as usual, ending the corruptive influence of money in politics, and ending unfair trade, I will be keeping an eye on my championship bracket.”
