Cain Connection: Tuesday, August 16, 2011


A Wonderful Week in Iowa

Last week, we embarked on our week-long “Common Sense Solutions Bus Tour” throughout the great state of Iowa. We traveled more than 1,800 miles in just five days and enjoyed visiting with the warm and friendly people of Iowa.  We also visited the Iowa State Fair, participated in the Fox News presidential debate, and joined in all the festivities at the Ames Straw Poll. This was our 27th trip to the state and we appreciated the opportunity to reconnect with many of our long-time supporters and to meet many new ones. We have just begun our work in Iowa as we lead up to the caucus early next year, and we are confident that our momentum will continue to grow. Check out videos from the tour !

Iowa Straw Poll Results

We are encouraged by our results in the recent Iowa straw poll.  We not only placed well above more established politicians, we did so with no debt.  As a businessman, I know how important it is to keep revenues ahead of expenditures.  Our grassroots efforts proved that we can change the politics-as-usual paradigm.  We have proved I am a viable candidate and we look forward to continuing our efforts to gain the nomination.  Click here to read our press release.

On the Road Again…

Monday, Herman addressed an overflow crowd in Indianapolis.  People were energized by the thought of a real leader and problem solver in the White House.  The response in Indianapolis and on the campaign trail is nothing short of amazing.  

South Carolina will be the location for a series of events on August 18.  Join Herman for a Meet & Greet at 3:30 p.m. at Hudson’s Barbeque, 4952 Sunset Blvd, Lexington, SC.  Herman will discuss “Cain’s Vision for Economic Growth.”  Click here for more information & schedule of events

The “Common Sense Solutions Bus Tour” will continue on this week with a journey into New Hampshire.  Herman will be visiting voters across the Granite State over the weekend with stops in Manchester, Dover, Portsmouth, Durham, and Newcastle.  Information on all stops can be found at .  Be sure to attend the opening of the New Hampshire Headquarters at 5:15 on Friday, August 19, at 62 Lowell Street in Manchester.  You will also not want to miss the opportunity to hear Herman speak at the New Hampshire Young Republicans Lobster Bake in Newcastle on Saturday, August 20.  Look for us behind the Newcastle Library.  Bring your family and enjoy the Lobster Bake!

In Case You Missed It

From Indy Star:  “That straw poll – a political carnival that is more a fundraising event for the Iowa Republican Party than a reliable predictor of a politician’s chances of winning the nomination…..”  Click here to view the entire article.
