Herman Cain Visits OKC
Oklahoma Republicans got a chance to cheer on Herman Cain Monday night despite his announcement over the weekend he was suspending his campaign for President.
About 300 people pack into the Marriot ballroom as GOP Chairman Matt Pinnell introduces the man of the hour.
Despite suspending his campaign over the weekend, he says he’s not going away and will continue to be a voice for the Republican Party.
He told supporters he decided to step aside because he needed to put family first.
“I know that many of you are disappointed. I and my wife are broken hearted, but I am not broken.”
Cain continued to tout his 9-9-9 plan and is releasing an energy policy in the next few weeks.
Cindy Daniel counts herself among those who wishes he would have stayed in the race.
“I’m disappointed in all the distractions. I think that without that he could have been the Republican candidate. And, I’m real disappointed about that.”
Cain told supporters he plans to change Washington from the outside now.
He stopped short of endorsing any candidate.
