The former CEO of Godfather's Pizza is throwing in his hat for the republican presidential bid.
Herman Cain formally launched a campaign for the republican presidential nomination on Saturday.
The 65-year-old has never held political office. He made an unsuccessful bid for Georgia Senator in 2004.
Cain worked as an executive at Coca-Cola, Pillsbury and Burger King before becoming CEO and president of Godfather's Pizza. He also served as chairman, president and CEO of the National Restaurant Association.
