As noted at US news on Saturday night, Herman Cain announced his endorsement to Newt Gingrich in West Palm Beach, Florida during the Lincoln Day dinner by the Palm Beach County Republican Party.

“I hereby officially and enthusiastically endorse Newt Gingrich for president of the United States,” Cain said on his speech, with the 68-year old former House Speaker present along with his third wife Callista Bisek.

“There are several reasons, many reasons, as to why I have reached this public decision. I had it in my heart and mind a long time ago. I know that Speaker Gingrich is a patriot, Speaker Gingrich is not afraid of bold ideas.” Cain added.

Cain, 65, the former chief of Godfather’s Pizza announced his withdrawal from the 2012 GOP presidential nomination last December 3, amid the controversy concerning women, who went out in public accusing him for allegedly harassing them.

After his announcement, Herman Cain was interviewed at CNN and cited his reasons for endorsing Newt Gingrich, that his platforms closely matched his own, particularly the 9-9-9 tax plan.

“When you find a candidate that basically is running still on the ideas and the ideologies that I was running on, along with him embracing 9-9-9, then it was a no-brainer and I thought that the timing was right,” Cain told CNN, noting that he does not care if Mitt Romney is currently leading the Florida primary polls.
