Buddy Roemer, a former Governor, 4-Term Congressman, Harvard Economist and Community Bank CEO entered the 2012 Presidential race intent on freeing Washington from the stranglehold of Corporate lobbyists and their big checks. To demonstrate his commitment, he has limited individual donations to $100 and accepts no PAC $$. He has been excluded from the debates, so to get his message to the masses and raise $ for the campaign, he relies almost solely on social media -- especially Twitter.
