Herman Cain, the former Republican presidential candidate, businessman and close ally of President Donald Trump, was guided by his Christian faith in politics, business and his personal life, his pastor said at his funeral Friday.
Cain “made his mark on this world” and his life will be celebrated for years to come, the Rev. Kenneth Lamont Alexander of Antioch Baptist Church North in Atlanta said.
Herman Cain, former Republican presidential candidate and former CEO of a major pizza chain who went on to become an ardent supporter of President Donald Trump, has died of complications from the coronavirus. He was 74.
Former Vanderbilt University professor Dr. Carol Swain and former Presidential candidate Herman Cain both agreed that support for President Trump is growing and not just in the black community, in an exclusive interview with The Tennessee Star prior to the official start of the Trump rally in Tulsa Saturday.
Both are members of the Black Voices for Trump Advisory Board, which started out with about 35 members and has now expanded to about 50. The Board includes other spiritual and social leaders such as Dr. Alveda King, Reverend C. L. Bryant, Deneen Borelli, Diamond and Silk and the Hodge Twins. At the insistence of others, Cain said he serves as one of the Board’s co-chairs.
