Remembering Herman Cain - a tribute by the Cobb County Republican Party

Last week we lost a great champion of conservatism with the passing of Herman Cain. Herman rose from humble beginnings. He often said his family wasn't poor, they were "po'" which was worse than poor, but they were happy.

Herman's father was the chauffeur for Coca-Cola CEO Robert Woodruff who saw the potential of Herman and helped him attend Morehouse College.

Cain went on to first distinguish himself in business and, eventually, in politics, for a time being the front runner in the polls for the Republican nomination for President in 2012.

Cain died July 30 from complications of COVID-19. Cain was high risk due to recent battles with cancer.

The Cobb County Republican Party produced a tribute video which we premiered on Facebook and showed at our breakfast. If you haven't seen it, you can watch it above.

Rest in peace Herman Cain. Your life made a difference in ours. The Cobb County Republican Party offers its condolences and shares in the grief with your family.

Yours in Freedom,


Jason Shepherd

Chairman, Cobb County Republican Party
