Presidential candidate to visit Tech

Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain, front-runner in the recent Florida straw poll, will make a campaign stop at Tech Oct. 15.

Cain is scheduled to speak to students about his presidential campaign at Derryberry Auditorium at 8:30 a.m. This event is open to the public, and is free.

Also on Oct. 15, there will also be a continental breakfast at 6:30 a.m. at the Southern Hills Golf and Country Club, hosted by talk radio host Steve Gill.

Cain’s victory in the Florida straw poll took place Sept. 24, where he was one of eight candidates. He took 37 percent of the votes, with Rick Perry coming in second with 14 percent.

Other Florida straw poll victories have proven to be significant, as three out of the last five winners later became president. This trend includes Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush.

Cain also won the National Federation of Republican Women’s Convention straw poll Oct. 1 with 48.9 percent of the vote.
