Herman Cain’s bus tour of South Florida began yesterday in Miami, and his first stop was at a local senior center to mingle with the local Cuban-American residents that constitute a large portion of the conservative voting bloc in Miami-Dade County. During the stop, one of the patrons surprisingly sprung up and started serenaded Mr. Cain in front of 200 attendees to the event. Cain then headed to the landmark Versailles Restaurant in Little Havana, a must-visit for all aspiring Presidential candidates. Under the melting Miami sun, Cain revved up the crowd of about 300 supporters.
Cain did not take any questions from the media or accept any interview requests, choosing to keep the media at arm’s length presumably because of the recent trial by fire he’s undergone in the media the past several weeks. But I, your well-honed reporter managed to get a question or two in on Mr. Cain as he enjoyed a cuban cortadito coffee and pastry.
At a later campaign stop at Wings Plus in Coral Springs, I was invited to hop aboard the “Cain Express” and get his thoughts on what America’s foreign policy should be. Cain used some tough rhetoric to describe his support for Israel as well as the need to apply more pressure against the Castro regime in Cuba. Hat tip to my friends (J.D., Ignacio, and Arlene) over at the Cain HQ for another invite to talk to Herman Cain.
