During the event, Roemer criticized the Republican Party for ignoring his campaign. He blasted fellow contenders Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney on their failure to address pertinent issues such as campaign finance reform, the death of American domestic industry, and energy independence.

Roemer, who has expressed interest in the American Elect ballot effort, said that he would not rule out a third party candidacy. 

"If the Republican Party keeps shutting me out," said Roemer, "I will find a way to have a third party stand with me, and we will get in those debates!"
