Roemer, who has been active on social media as a candidate, wrote and tweeted that he will turn his full attention to campaign finance reform.
As I am no longer a candidate for president, I am free to pledge a good portion of the rest of my life to enacting campaign reform.— Gov. Buddy Roemer (@BuddyRoemer) May 31, 2012
"Instead of using my right to the floor of Congress to lobby for corporate clients, I will lobby for the American people who want reform," he promised. "It might require a new organization to get this done, but regardless, we will highlight corruption and its effects on policy and public perception, suggest solutions, build coalitions and support the advocates of our ideas or those who have better ones."
Roemer, formerly a Democratic congressman, switched to the Republican Party while serving as governor of Louisiana in 1991.
