Herman Cain

Conservative Political Pundit, Business Executive & Radio Host

Herman Cain Biography

Herman Cain is an American businessman and conservative political pundit who sought the Republican presidential nomination in 2012.

Cain was hired by the Pillsbury Company in 1977 to manage an analysis group. By 1981 he had been promoted to vice president of corporate systems and services. A year later, however, he left the position to helm a Philadelphia unit of Pillsbury’s struggling Burger King franchises. He went on to resuscitate the franchises in his charge through a series of customer service and employee morale initiatives. In 1986 Cain took over the struggling Pillsbury holding Godfather’s Pizza. He aggressively streamlined its menu and closed unproductive restaurants, rescuing the chain from bankruptcy in a little over a year. In 1988 Cain led a buyout of the company. He served as chief executive officer and president of Godfather’s until 1996, when he assumed a parallel position with the National Restaurant Association.

It was during this period that he first came to national prominence after confronting U.S. Pres. Bill Clinton at a nationally televised town hall meeting over health care reform. Cain saw the proposed changes as unfair to business owners and claimed that they would force him to cut jobs. His outspoken questioning of Clinton led prominent Republicans Jack Kemp and Newt Gingrich to recruit Cain for an economic study group. He later served as an adviser to Kemp when he was selected by Republican presidential candidate Bob Dole to run as vice president in 1996.

In 2004 Cain staged a failed bid for the Republican nomination for the state Senate in Georgia. He continued to espouse his conservative views on his Atlanta-based radio talk show (2008–11) and through appearances on Fox News. He became a vocal critic of the economic and social policies of the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama, positioning himself as a spokesman of the burgeoning Tea Party movement. In May 2011 Cain announced his bid for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination.

In 2019 U.S. President Donald Trump announced that he would be nominating Cain for a seat on the Federal Reserve Board. The move proved controversial, with some of Trump’s fellow Republicans voicing reservations. Amid doubts that he would secure enough votes for U.S. Senate confirmation, Cain withdrew his name from consideration.

Cain wrote several books espousing his business and political philosophies, including "Speak as a Leader: Develop the Better Speaker in You," "CEO of Self: You’re in Charge," and "They Think You’re Stupid: Why Democrats Lost Your Vote and What Republicans Must Do to Keep It." The memoir "This Is Herman Cain!" was published in 2011.
