Last night, Presidential Candidate Herman Cain spoke to a few hundred Central Floridians at the “Conservative Roar from the I-4 Corridor” rally hosted by WORL-660 am and several Tea Party Organizations.
The Godfather’s Pizza CEO did what he did best last night, he fired up the troops. A gifted speaker, Cain spoke about his family, his desire to be a successful businessman, and his vision for America if he were elected President.
About current GOP frontrunner and Texas Governor Rick Perry “He’s just another politician for me to beat”.
That was about the only jab you would see Cain take at a fellow GOP candidate. He has plenty to say about President Barack Obama.
While he’s got a terrific story, can hold an audience, and is a very likeable candidate, Cain isn’t a top tier candidate polling only at %6 in a recent FOX news poll. He also made the same environmental faux pas, Michele Bachmann made by pushing for drilling off the Florida coast and in the everglades. “Go where the energy is” Cain said a few times throughout the evening. He would be a popular pick for the VP nod and when asked about this from a local radio host he said..
“Let’s get one thing straight, I’m running to win” “I would have to look at who the nominee is before I made a decision”
That leaves a little wiggle room.
Seminole County Supervisor of Elections Mike Ertel did another great job conducting the straw poll and the results demonstrate that pounding the pavement works. All of the winners were in attendance. Results are at the 13:15 mark of the video.
Overall, it was an successful event that along with the recent opening of an Obama for America office last week sets up the pieces for a political battleground unlike any other in the country.
