Cain's Endorsement Might Go to Fellow Georgian


Newt Gingrich: NO FLAG

As my colleagues report, the remaining members of the GOP presidential field are already racing for the endorsement of now ex-candidate Herman Cain, who stated during his farewell address he plans to support one of his former rivals. The early front-runner? It has to be fellow Georgian Newt Gingrich, the ex-speaker of the House who has been overtly friendly to Cain and attracts a similar type of supporter. 
In early November, Gingrich and Cain participated in an amicable two-person debate together, an unusual event for two men who are ostensibly rivals. Cain even made a point of praising his opponent. 
"I'm supposed to have a minute to disagree with something that he said, but I don't," said Cain, according to The New York Times. "I believe, as Speaker Gingrich believes, that we can't reshuffle Medicaid, Medicare or Social Security. We must restructure."
