By and large, many pundits have declared Herman Cain's bid for the presidency a long shot at best, or already over...
However, Herman Cain begs to differ...as do the straw poll delegates in Florida.
“Thank you to the Republican voters for this incredible honor of being named the winner of the Presidency 5 straw poll in Florida today,” Mr. Cain said. “This is a sign of our growing momentum and my candidacy that cannot be ignored. I will continue to share my message of ‘common-sense solutions’ across this country and look forward to spending more time in Florida, a critical state for both the nomination and the general election.”
Regardless of your personal preferences, Cain's video is a good reminder: In 2012, you have a choice to make between two very different visions for America...
As Moe noted yesterday:
The very quick take: excellent news for Cain, who generally shone in Thursday’s debate. Bad news for Perry, as he was actively trying to win this race (and did not shine in Thursday’s debate). Romney’s people are currently telling themselves and the media that it is not equally bad news for Romney, as he didn’t try to win this poll; which is true, but it’s bad news for Romney nonetheless.
