ATLANTA (AP) -- Republican Herman Cain credits God with telling
him that he needed to run for president.
The businessman-turned-candidate known most for his "9-9-9" tax plan and recent allegations of sexual harassment, spoke about
his religious beliefs during a weekend speech to young Republicans
Cain said he finally realized after much praying that God was saying that he needed to enter the presidential race. He compared
his situation to Moses, who in the Bible initially questions whether God has chosen the right person to lead the Israelites out of slavery in Egypt. Cain said that once he made the decision to run, he has not looked back. He didn't mention the harassment controversy.
