Another candidate has entered the Republican presidential field. Former Godfather’s Pizza CEO Herman Cain announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination in his home town of Atlanta, Georgia today. Instead of announcing via social networking websites, Cain, currently a talk radio host, made his announcement at a rally in Centennial Olympic Park.
Cain said, “I‘m running for president of the United States and I’m not running for second.”
Cain joins the field that includes Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX), former Governor Gary Johnson (R-NM), and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich (R-GA).
News outlets report that Tim Pawlenty will not be far behind. He will reportedly announce his bid for the Republican candidacy at a town hall event in Des Moines, Iowa Monday. The former Governor or Minnesota, who formed an exploratory committee in March, will travel to Florida after his Iowa announcement.
