(AmericanPoliticalDaily.com)- COVID-19 is still very present across the United States, and 2012 Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain has tested positive for the deadly Chinese virus. Cain’s staff, who assist him in his work as a popular radio personality, announced the sad news on Tuesday that he is in hospital receiving treatment after testing positive for the virus.
Cain’s Twitter account announced that the 74-year-old Republican figure was tested and later admitted to a hospital in Atlanta on Wednesday. His staff say they are unsure how he contracted COVID, but reassured followers that he is “awake and alert” and “resting comfortably.”
We are sorry to announce that Herman Cain has tested positive for COVID-19, and is currently receiving treatment in an Atlanta-area hospital.
Please keep him, and all who are battling this virus, in your prayers.

“There is no way of knowing for sure how or where Mr. Cain contracted the coronavirus, but we do know he is a fighter who has beaten Stage 4 cancer,” his staff said.
“With God’s help, we are confident he will make a quick and complete recovery, and will soon resume hosting The Herman Cain Show at HermanCain.com, and Herman Cain’s America on Newsmax TV.”
Cain did indeed survive cancer, back in 2006. Stage 5 colon cancer quickly spread to his liver and he was given just a 30% chance of surviving. Through extensive chemotherapy, however, he beat the disease and has remained in remission since then.
While he may not be a political candidate or elected official, Cain has remained popular among grassroots Republicans and even attended the Tulsa rally on June 20th as a surrogate for President Trump’s reelection campaign.

Cain is just one of many pro-Trump black voices I the Republican party, fighting back against the fake narrative from the Democrats and Black Lives Matter that skin color should dictate who you vote for. And who you don’t vote for.
