Cain Might Jump Into 2012 Fray

Just a day after stealing the show at a Republican debate in Greenville, S.C., Herman Cain seems to be inching closer to an official run for the GOP nomination for president.

Cain's press office said Friday that Cain, an Atlanta businessman and radio talk show host, will make a decision on May 21.

At Thursday's debate, Cain outdid the perceived frontrunner, former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, winning in a focus group conducted after the debate. He used his image as an outsider—Cain has not held elected office—as an advantage during the debate.

Another Georgia presidential announcement is expected this week: Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich told Hotline On Call that he would "be in by the 10th or 11th." On Friday, Gingrich announced a campaign manager.

Thursday's debate is not the only attention that South Carolina, an important early primary state, is getting this week.

Former Obama administration ambassador to China Jon Huntsman, who this week established a political action committee that will allow him to raise funds for a potential presidential bid is delivering a commencement address at the Univesity of South Carolina Saturday.

Later this month, he's got another commencement speech lined up in the first-in-the-Nation primary state of New Hampshire. Then-Sen. Barack Obama was the school's 2007 commencement speaker.
