For 2 years we’ve burnt the midnight oil to promote the Common Sense conservative agenda of Herman Cain. Mr. Cain went from Herman Who? to being a household name. We also developed the largest army of grassroots supporters of any candidate in the field. Your tireless work and dedication are HUGELY appreciated.
In life, things don’t always turn out the way we want but we still need to move forward. The same is true in politics. While Mr. Cain has suspended his campaign, he has ordered all the field offices to begin closing and operations will cease by year end. He also confirmed this in an email to me this morning.
Much of Cain’s political views and foundational beliefs were parallel to Newt Gingrich. In fact, before HermanCain.com became a political website, Cain promoted most of his views with links to Gingrich’s American Solutions. They are sound economic principles.
DraftCain.org/ElectCain.com has built a strong presence within the Facebook platform that has mobilized tens of thousands of people. We need your involvement, just as you have with your dedication with Herman Cain for our Plan B.
Over the course of the next few days we will be changing our Elect Cain State Groups to Gingrich organizational groups. We believe that Gingrich is our best hope for restoring Common Sense conservatism.
Newt Gingrich has catapulted to the front of the bus by consistency and persistency, sound familiar? He is polling number one nationally and has a commanding lead in the polls in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Florida. There is more polling data for this election cycle than any other time in history.
Herman Cain’s senior organizational teams, led by Jamie Brazil, have signed on and will be taking over field operations shortly. We’ve discussed with many in our leadership and nearly the entire operation is going to migrate over.
1. The Gingrich Jobs and Prosperity Plan: http://www.newt.org/solutions/jobs-economy
- Stop the 2013 tax increases
- Make the United States the most desirable location for new business investment
- Move toward an optional flat tax of 15%.
- Strengthen the dollar.
- Remove obstacles to job creation imposed by destructive and ineffective regulations, programs and bureaucracies.
- Implement an American energy policy.
- Balance the budget.
- Repeal and replace Obamacare.
- Fundamental reform of entitlement programs.
As you can see, the Gingrich plan is sound policy. I would encourage you to visit and register at http://www.newt.org/volunteer.
There is no time to lick our wounds or opt out, time is of the essence. Next week Americans will begin celebrating the holiday season and politicking will be on the back burner. In January voting begins. The foundational action items we used with Herman will be the same process with Gingrich. Thanks for ALL you’ve done over the past 2 years and thanks for doing what you’re doing now. You’re GREAT AMERICANS!
