Pizza Magnate Herman Cain Explores 2012 Presidential Run

According to the Wall Street Journal, “Herman Cain, a tea party star, talk radio host and former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, announced Wednesday he’s forming an exploratory committee for a run at the White House.”

“It’s a bit of a long-shot. Though Mr. Cain is revered in conservative-activist circles, he is little known elsewhere. He’s never held office and lost a 2004 primary challenge to Georgia Republican Sen. Johnny Isakson. Still, he’s managed to spark a “draft Cain” movement and this weekend will travel to Iowa, his seventh visit there since July 4, 2009. ‘The American Dream is under attack,’ Mr. Cain said in a statement on his website. ‘While our country faces grave and complex problems, America is not lost forever. The glory of the American Dream can still be found in the hearts of those who love Her and the promise of freedom She guarantees.’”
