Herman Cain: Viva Las Vegas!

Posted on | May 7, 2011 | 12 Comments

Mike Chamberlain at Cranky Hermit has a report of Herman Cain’s appearance at Chuck Muth’s “First Friday” event in Vegas:

The day after an impressive performance in a Republican Presidential debate, Herman Cain left little doubt about his future intentions. He told the assembled local bloggers and print journalists at a briefing in Las Vegas, “Hold the date of May 21st . . . in Atlanta, Atlanta’s Centennial Park. Hold the date. Now do you think I’m going to be holding the date and having a rally at Centennial Park on May 21st to tell you that I am not running? You make the call. Last night exceeded our expectations.” . . .
Cain, who described himself as “proud to be an American, black conservative,” dismissed race as an issue. “Color is off the table whether I run or not,” he said, adding, “Did Barack Obama open the door for me because I’m black? No. The door was already open. He just happened to get through it first.” . . .
Later that evening one of the largest crowds ever attended the First Friday event, primarily to see featured speaker Cain. Many came to see him despite not knowing who he was a mere 24 hours earlier. After delivering his speech he was deluged with requests for photographs and autographs by an adoring crowd.

Read the whole thing. Among other things, Cain pointed out that Nevada is the first western state to hold a 2012 primary — and he loves Las Vegas.
