Presidential hopeful Buddy Roemer has announced he is joining an Occupy Wall Street demonstration in New York City Tuesday, according to Politico.
The former Louisiana governor is the only Republican candidate to express support for the largely left-wing protest movement, saying the government is “controlled by special interest money."
Roemer announced his plans to attend the demonstration on Twitter.
“I am concerned and outraged, as are many, at Wall Street greed,” he wrote. “I will be joining Occupy Wall Street NYC Tuesday to see it firsthand. My decision to join Occupy Wall Street is to put an end to bashing by fellow GOP candidates.
“I want to hear the stories of protestors. It’s about time Americans rose up against institutional corruption. I want to stand by them. Wall Street must be held accountable,” Roemer wrote. “I’m a Harvard economist and biz school grad. I have never seen our economy or political system this broken or corrupt. Enough is enough.”
