Herman Cain! Here! Wake GOP excited and hoping for free pizza

Posted by on Thu, Mar 8, 2012 at 4:30 PM

Remember when Herman Cain was the front-runner for president in the Republican universe?

Good times.

Well, the hits just keep on coming as Mr. Pizza-zz brings his show to Raleigh in two weeks.

Cain's the cornerman for Newt Gingrich these days, fyi.

A Gingrich-Cain ticket could dominate in the over-60 swingers demographic.

The news just came across our digits from the Wake GOP (with a subsequent note changing the site from Dorton to Kerr Scott):

On Thursday, March 22, the 2012 Wake County Republican Party Convention will be held at Dorton Arena the Kerr Scott Building on the NC State Fairgrounds. The program will include a keynote address by former Presidential candidate, Herman Cain.

All who registered for the Precinct Meeting on February 16, 2012 are eligible to serve as a delegate or alternate at the convention. Those who did not register for the precinct meeting may still attend the convention by registering as an observer.

To sign up as a delegate, go to www.wakegop.org and pay the $25 delegate fee online or print and mail the form along with a check to Wake GOP Convention, ATTN: Susan Bryant, PO Box 30608, Raleigh, NC 27622.

Sign up quickly because on March 17, the delegate fee will increase to $50. Admission for observers is $50 in advance and $75 at the door.

Place: North Carolina State Fairgrounds Dorton Arena Kerr Scott Building - 1025 Blue Ridge Road, Raleigh, NC 27607

Date: Thursday, March 22, 2012

Doors Open: 5:30 p.m.

Program with Keynote speaker Herman Cain: 7:00 p.m.

Don't blame me if there's no free pizza. I'd have it there, no question.
