Cain to Visit Oklahoma

Oklahoma City, OK – The Oklahoma Republican Party says GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain is scheduled to visit the state for a fundraiser on Dec. 5.

Party Chairman Matt Pinnell says Cain will attend a private fundraiser earlier in the day and then join the Oklahoma GOP for a rally and a fundraiser at 6:30 p.m. at the Oklahoma City Marriot.

Pinnell says the invitation is not an endorsement of Cain, and that similar invitations have been extended to all of the GOP presidential candidates. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney visited Oklahoma last month.

The former president and CEO of Godfather's Pizza, Cain has hosted a radio talk show and served as chairman of the board of directors of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City.
