CNN: Potential GOP candidate Herman Cain has indicated that he will formally announce he will run for president at an event to be held in two weeks. And despite many political observers dismissing him as a potential challenger, his campaign’s communications director told CNN on Saturday, “We are running an operation because we are first-tier. We’re serious.”
….In January, the former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza was the first Republican to officially form a presidential exploratory committee. Cain won the Tea Party live straw poll at a summit in Phoenix in February and has since courted potential supporters in the early primary and caucus states of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina, among other stops around the country.
I love the line “We are running an operation because we are first-tier” …. you’d hate to see the GOP’s second tier
