NTPA Alert: Herman Cain, A True Son of the South

Herman Cain, A True Son of the South

Former Godfathers Pizza CEO Herman Cain made a few waves by releasing a campaign music video designed to introduce himself to potential 2012 voters.

The Cain message is not only intended to appeal to Tea Party supporters nationwide, but also to counter charges of racism against those groups. In the video, Cain (who is black) is quoted as saying, “All those people saying the Tea Party is a racist organization — eat your words.”

Recent Gallup polling has Cain at 8%.

Will He or Won’t He?

South Carolina Senator Jim DeMint seems to be backtracking on recent comments that he made which seemed to suggest a potential presidential bid for the conservative favorite.

Following a recent comment that said he was considering a bid for The Oval Office, DeMint spokesman Wesley Denton told CBS News, “Sen. DeMint is focused on his job to stop the reckless spending in Washington and helping to elect more principled conservatives to join the fight in the Senate.”
