While Herman Cain has been at the center of a scandal surrounding sexual harassment allegations, with many political insiders predicting a total meltdown, his campaign has been raising some serious cash.
The Herman Cain Campaign reports raising over $9 million since October 1st, with 25% of that received since sexual harassment allegations consumed media coverage of Mr. Cain.
In the way of context, during the entire third quarter, May 1 through the end of September, the Cain campaign raised only about half that much, $4.7 million.
"Mr. Cain's vision to renew our country and create new jobs via his bold "9-9-9 Plan" is resonating across America," said Mark Block, Chief of Staff to the Herman Cain presidential campaign. "Mr. Cain's business experience and executive leadership is needed to put America back on the track to prosperity. Voters want to be part of the Cain Train so they are donating their time, talent and treasure to make sure Mr. Cain is our next president."
