at the Ames straw poll festivities on Saturday, August 13, 2011.
Cain will join Governor Mike Huckabee
at noon at the
Friends of Herman Cain tent to share their musical talents with straw
"I am honored to have the Governor join me on stage for this historic
event," Cain said. "We share many commonalities, including the deepness
of our Christian faith and our love of music," Cain said. "I am humbled
by his graciousness to share his musical gifts with me and I hope Iowa
voters will enjoy the show."
Both Cain and Governor Huckabee are supporters of the Fair Tax and both
are Baptist ministers. Cain appeared on "Huckabee" on Saturday, May 28,
2011 on the FOX News Channel. He will appear on "Huckabee" again
following the straw poll Saturday.
Straw poll goers will also enjoy fresh slices of pizza from Godfather's
Cain served as the President and CEO of Godfather's Pizza and, after a
dramatic financial turnaround of the company, led his management team
in a buyout of the restaurant chain.
"Godfather's is a true American success story. With the right
leadership, we were able to take the company from the brink of
bankruptcy to profitability in just 14 months," Cain said. "With 116
locations in Iowa alone, Iowans have come to know and love Godfather's
as an institution in the state."
"While many candidates will bring in outside entertainment and food, I
have chosen to create a personal experience for straw poll goers," Cain
said. "Both music and Godfather's have been essential components in the
achievement of my American Dream, and I am honored to share them with
thousands of friends at Ames."
