GOP Candidate Herman Cain Visits Houston

While Texas Governor Rick Perry was in South Carolina announcing details of a proposed flat tax, GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain, the man who is promoting a 9-9-9 tax plan, was a guest speaker at rally sponsored by the Clear Lake Tea Party Tuesday evening.

Dozens of people waited in line for a chance to pay $100 for an autograph copy of his book, Herman Cain! My Journey to the White House, shake hands and pose for pictures with Cain.

Some political pundits have predicted that Cain will soon reach the end of his fifteen minutes of political fame, but many of the people who attended the event view Cain as the real deal.

“We like him because he speaks the truth and isn’t a politician,” said Geri Bentley, with the Clear Lake Tea Party.

A CBS News/New York Times poll released Tuesday shows Cain leading all republican presidential hopefuls, while Governor Perry placed a distant fifth in the poll of registered, likely republican voters.

Meanwhile, the Texas Tea Party Patriots announced Monday they will host a Lincoln-Douglas debate,” featuring Cain and Newt Gingrich. One of the debates is scheduled to take place in the Woodlands.
