Cain Draws Crowd at Health Caucus Meeting

Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain brought a packed house on Wednesday to the typically one-man show known as the Health Care Caucus.

The caucus, run by Rep. Michael Burgess, R-Texas, usually holds small events showcasing Republican viewpoints on health policy.


But this time Burgess's caucus got wrapped in the media circus that is Herman Cain. Coming off several days of questions about sexual harassment claims, Cain tried to focus on his health policy platform, which was very general and stuck to Republican talking points on having "open-market" reforms.

Cain repeatedly ignored questions on the sexual harassment scandal and took no questions from reporters. More than 100 people, mostly media, squeezed into a nondescript room in the Rayburn House Office Building to see Cain speak.
