WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – Atlanta businessman and former presidential candidate Herman Cain will endorse Newt Gingrich for the GOP nomination for president tonight at a West Palm Beach Country Republican gathering, sources have told National Journal.
Since he quit his own campaign for president in December under a cloud of sexual harrassment allegations, the former pizza company executive has wavered on whether he would offer his support to a fellow candidate.
Gingrich’s campaign can only hope that the support of the once-popular candidate will give a shot of life to his campaign, which is beginning to falter in Florida after a series of rough debates and nonstop attacks from rival Mitt Romney. But Cain’s support may have lost his luster after nearly two months out off the campaign trail.
