A former Louisiana governor is getting a lot of attention as of late.
Buddy Roemer's possible run for the presidency is turning heads all around the country. He was featured in an online article in the New York Times today.
The republican also has a five minute video interview with Times reporter Michael Shear.
When asked why he wants to run for president, Roemer responded, “It’s the crisis facing the country…debt higher than you can stand or fly.”
Roemer is spending most of the week in Washington D.C. as he continues to test the waters for a possible presidential run.
