HARRIMAN, Tenn. (AP) -- Republican presidential hopeful Herman
Cain says he's challenging Gov. Rick Perry for the GOP primary's
critical evangelical vote.
In an interview with The Associated Press on Saturday, Cain said
the Texas governor "thought he had carved out that niche when he
didn't own that niche by himself."
The Georgia businessman said he doesn't wear his Christian faith
"on my forehead" but believes his campaign will do well with
religious conservative voters.
Cain drew rousing applause at a recent Values Voters Summit.
Perry has a strong track record among religious, voters organizing
a rally just before entering the race for the White House that race
that drew 30,000 people.
Cain was barnstorming across Tennessee Saturday completing a bus tour. Polls show him vaulting to the top tier of the GOP contest.
JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) -- Herman Cain's improbable campaign for the
presidency is all about momentum right now.
There are many reasons his bid could fade as quickly as it rose.
He acknowledged Friday that he will trail former Massachusetts Gov.
Mitt Romney and Texas Gov. Rick Perry significantly in fundraising.
Cain has never held elected office and could wilt under the rigors
of the campaign and its withering scrutiny.
But Cain's moment is right now, and the former Godfather's pizza
chief executive is marketing himself with practiced skill, banking
on his charisma and the notion that the messenger is as important
as the message.
His everyman image is resonating.
