Gingrich gets endorsement from Herman Cain
Former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain has endorsed Newt Gingrich for the GOP nomination. "I hereby officially and enthusiastically endorse Newt Gingrich for President of the United States," Cain said at a dinner the two attended in Florida on Saturday night.
Gingrich, a former House of Representatives speaker, is in a fierce fight for Tuesday's Florida's Republican primary with Mitt Romney. There have been multiple winners in the various primaries, and getting as many endorsements as possible will go a long way toward getting the nomination for President of the United States.
According to Cain, he called Gingrich, "a great candidate". "He has a lot of positive attributes. I'm not against Mitt Romney if Mitt Romney gets the nomination, I'm gonna support him. But right now, I'm hoping Newt Gingrich gets the nomination and I'm going to work, and try to see to it that he gets the nomination." The Republicans are in such a tough fight that they may be so divided by the time the election comes around that they will not be able to get enough votes for the respective candidate.
Cain, a favorite of the conservative tea party movement and a former pizza executive, left the race before the first nominating contests facing accusations of unwanted sexual advances. He remains popular, however, and would be a late boost for Gingrich.
