At least one GOP candidate is among those who don’t know how the Iowa caucuses work.
There’s just one problem: there is no set ballot in the Iowa caucuses. It’s a point that Roemer seemed to have learned tonight, thanks to his pals on Twitter.
The confusion began as @kevinjthompson alerted the dark horse candidate about an hour and a half into the caucuses: “@BuddyRoemer I have a friend in just voted in Iowa and claimed he didn’t see your name on his ballot”
@BuddyRoemer retweeted the concern and followed up with a request for help: “If you live in Iowa, please Tweet me a picture of the ballot. Many people saying that I’m not included on them? #sneaky”
That’s when @mattyohe came to Roemer’s rescue: “@BuddyRoemer There is no ballot. Blank piece of paper, you write a name on it. #IowaCaucus”
“Well, that would explain why my name isn’t on it. #DuhBuddy,” replied a now enlightened Roemer.
