23 Names on Buddy Roemer’s Not So Short List for VP

Buddy Roemer told viewers of MSNBC’s Morning Joe that his list of potential running mates includes 23 independents and Democrats.

Before he can pick a Vice-President, Roemer must first secure 1,000 supporters in each of 10 states to move on to the next round of balloting.  That’s according to current Americans Elect rules.

He’s currently about 20% of the way to his goal with little more than a week remaining before the deadline.  No other candidate is close.

“We’re looking at 23 different people to have as a running mate. Under the rules of the Americans Elect unity ticket we have to pick a Democrat or Independent,” said Roemer, who has previously indicated that the American people will be “shocked, pleased and surprised” by his choice.

“I won’t make that announcement until I win or lose this round of Americans Elect,” said Roemer, who will turn 69 (23 times 3) on Oct. 4.
