Former COX MEDIA GROUP WSB-A-WSBB/ATLANTA host HERMAN CAIN formally announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination for President SUNDAY (5/23). The former GODFATHER'S PIZZA CEO's announcement came at a rally in ATLANTA's CENTENNIAL PARK, where ABC NEWS reports he said, "After prayerful consideration with my family and closest friends, I have decided to seek the Republican nomination for president of the UNITED STATES. I look forward to continuing my travels across the country, engaging in discussions with the American people about the concerns facing our nation and sharing my 'common sense solutions' with them."
"In case you accidentally listen to a skeptic or doubting Thomas out there, just to be clear... I'm running for President of the UNITED STATES, and I'm not running for second," said CAIN.
