Former Godfather Pizza CEO and 2012 Presidential Candidate Herman Cain has died of COVID-19.
He passed away at the age of 74.
Cain’s death was announced on HermanCain.com by Dan Calabrese.
In his blog post, Calabrese said “Herman Cain – our boss, our friend, like a father to so many of us – has passed away.”
Cain was a vocal supporter of President Trump, a survivor of stage 4 colon cancer, CEO of Godfather’s Pizza and a chairman of Kansas City’s Federal Reserve Bank.
Cain, fed up with the way the U.S. was headed, decided to run for President in 2012. He went from a dark horse candidate to becoming a top tier candidate and even wat one point the front runner.
Voters flocked to Cain for his charm, willingness to say what was on his mind, and well-marketed 9-9-9 economic plan.
Many voters may remember this “outside the box” ad featuring his campaign chief of staff Mark Block smoking which drew a lot of attention to his campaign:
