|NASHVILLE - Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain will bring his message of common sense solutions to the steps of the Murfreesboro courthouse at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, July 14.
Syndicated radio talk show host Steve Gill will introduce Cain at the Murfreesboro rally.
Cain will spend the morning of July 14 making the rounds on local radio and television talk shows. In the afternoon he’ll meet with Tennessee Republicans. After his appearance in Murfreesboro, Cain will attend a fundraising event in Nashville.
After a Fox News focus group named Cain winner the 2012 South Carolina Republican presidential debate, his message has continued to resonate with potential voters.
“I am not a politician. I am a problem solver,” said Cain. “The American dream is under attack but we are fighting back.”
Cain placed first in last week’s intensity poll by Gallup, third in the June 22 Des Moines Register poll and according to Klout, is the most influential GOP presidential candidate on Twitter.
Of the top eight Republican presidential candidates, Cain is the first to make a public appearance in Tennessee.
“Herman Cain is establishing his grassroots coalition and this is his opportunity to introduce himself to Tennesseans,” said Michael Branch, Tennessee state director for the Friends of Herman Cain.
