Official Campaign Website


Herman Cain was a candidate for the Republican Party presidential nomination and has served as the president and CEO of the National Restaurant Association. He suspended his campaign in December 2011 after receiving multiple allegations of sexual harassment. Cain is known for his 9-9-9 tax plan which would replace all taxes with a 9% business transaction tax, 9% personal income tax rate, and a 9% federal sales tax. He is pro-life and has criticized welfare programs. Cain has made many anti-Muslim statements which range from saying that American communities have the right to ban mosques to stating that he would not be comfortable having a Muslim serve in his administration. He supports Israel, is a proponent of the Iraq War, and has expressed confusion about the United States’ role in Libya.
