This is going to upset a lot of people. The question is....does Newt really want his endorsement? You see, Cain wasn't a serious candidate until he woke up one morning and found himself in the lead. He was on a self-promotional book tour disguised as a presidential campaign. He wasn't serious in the beginning and that is why he was so ill-prepared for the debates and the issues. Further evidence for this is the fact that he hadn't even bothered to vet himself for the type of scrutiny that all candidates undergo. Source: Herman Cain to Endorse Newt Gingrich Sources tell FOX 5 News that Herman Cain plans to endorse fellow Georgian Newt Gingrich on Monday. They say details of a formal announcement are still being worked out. A spokesperson with the Gingrich campaign said there is a 2 p.m. press conference in New York, which would follow a meeting with Donald Trump.
