COX RADIO Talk WSB-A-WBTS/ATLANTA evening host HERMAN CAIN is considering running for President in 2012, according to an interview he gave to the DAILY CALLER's ALEX PAPPAS.
CAIN, the former CEO of GODFATHER'S PIZZA and one of the most prominent African-American Republicans, told PAPPAS after a FLORIDA rally that Republicans are "ready for a non-establishment candidate. I will run proudly as a non-establishment candidate. I think the public has an appetite for a non-establishment candidate."
CAIN said that three factors will play into his decision whether or not to run, including his ability to build a coalition of conservative, grassroots voters; money; and how this year's elections turn out. "If the conservative Republicans are successful in taking back control of the House, that means that the citizens movement -- as I call it -- is ... ready for a presidential candidate who has not necessarily held public office before," CAIN told PAPPAS.
