Cain: Debate Isn’t Among ‘Second Tier’ Candidates

Herman Cain struck back at the media narrative that tomorrow’s South Carolina debate would be mostly among “second tier or junior” candidates.

In a Fox News interview this afternoon with Neil Cavuto, Cain pointed out that he has won straw polls. He also said that the candidates not showing up to the debate “have made a mistake.”

Cain won a straw poll of Arizona Tea Partiers in February, and another one in Iowa in March.
