Business Executive to “Test Waters” for Potential White House Bid.
STOCKBRIDGE, GA- Business executive Herman Cain announced today that he has officially established a presidential exploratory committee, “Friends of Herman Cain,” to “test the waters” for a possible White House bid.
“After receiving overwhelming encouragement from supporters and donors across the U.S., I have decided to form a presidential exploratory committee,” Cain said. “During this time, we will examine the extent of financial resources and grassroots support that would be critical to winning the Republican nomination.”
Cain is best known for his role as President and CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, Inc., where he led the company from the brink of bankruptcy to profitability in just 14 months. He has also served as an executive of other Fortune 500 Companies, such as Pillsbury and Burger King.
He served as chairman of the Federal Reserve in Kansas City, as well as the President and CEO of the National Restaurant Association. Cain was a senior economic adviser to the Dole/ Kemp presidential campaign in 1996.
Cain hosts a nightly radio program, “The Herman Cain Show,” one of the highest-rated shows in the Atlanta media market. He is also a syndicated columnist.
“Friends of Herman Cain” is a registered non-profit in the state of Georgia, and the names of exploratory committee members will be released at a later date.
