Charles 'Buddy' Roemer gestures during a news conference in Baton Rouge, La., to announce that he is forming an exploratory committee for a 2012 White House bid. Only two presidential candidates have applied for and received federal matching campaign funds this election cycle year, and they're hardly household names. One is Roemer, who suspended campaigning late last week “after 17 months of a wonderful campaign.” (AP Photo/Gerald Herbert, File)
