TUSCALOOSA | After winning the West Alabama State Straw Poll on Saturday morning, Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain voiced his support for Alabama’s controversial immigration law.
“Under the Cain presidency, the Justice Department would not be suing Alabama. The Justice Department would be helping Alabama,” Cain said to applause from the hundreds in attendance at the Bryant Conference Center.
Though Alabama’s law is considered the most restrictive law against illegal immigrants in the nation, Cain said “empowering states to do what the federal government won’t do” is key in solving the nation’s illegal immigration problem.

HUNTSVILLE, Alabama – In a city known for space, with the Saturn V just beyond him, Herman Cain gave his unqualified support for the future of the United States space exploration Saturday evening.
Remembering President John F. Kennedy’s 1960s call to send a man to the moon before the end of the decade, Cain on Saturday said he believes Americans are still inspired by space and opposed to President Barack Obama’s recent NASA budget cuts.
During a brief news conference at the Marriott at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center, before he spoke to the Alabama Federation of Republican Women’s convention, Cain was clear that space exploration will be among his priorities, saying he will reverse the Obama cuts.

:: The True Threat of Herman Cain ::
For me David Morris explains the ‘Importance’ of Hermain Cain the best:
(h/t Blackie SM)
Herman Cain just may represent the greatest threat to the viability of the Democratic Party since the 1960s. The reason why is simple:
Because he is black. And he’s a Republican.
Worse yet: he could be remembered as the successful second black president who immediately followed the failures of the first. With such a legacy, he just might create a new wave of open-minded voters within the black community.
Such a wave would carry truly dangerous implications for the Democratic party.
For the past 40 years, Democrats could more or less take the African-American vote for granted. Paradoxically, many of these minority voters are not fully invested in the standard liberal agenda that the Democrats have come to represent. This is particularly true amongst those within the minority demographic who are middle class and church going.

JUST Piper enthusiastically supports Herman Cain, as we have from the very beginning. I have been in politics for 50 years & there have been very few candidates I have been this sure about. Excited about. For far too many candidates, my vote has sadly gone more for voting ‘against’ one than for one.
I have been a foot soldier from the age of eight. I have volunteered and worked tirelessly for GOP candidates in Chicago, where fighting the Daley Machine was always a losing battle. I supported the Alan Keyes campaign against Obama for Senate because I had done thorough research on Obama locally and knew what trouble our country would be in if he became president.
Herman, as every candidate, has things we may not support. But there is NO squeaky clean candidate or a candidate without some issue. For goodness sake, they are all human. But overall, Herman is genuine. He is not radical like many candidates. Wishy-washy like some. Flip flopping and politically charming his way to top tier.
I am certain in my heart with my political knowledge that Herman Cain will not disappoint us & make us regret having voted for him.
Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain has taken the lead in the race to win the Iowa Caucuses, according to a Des Moines Register poll published Saturday.
Cain finished with 23 percent, narrowly beating former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney who finished with 22 percent. The two are essentially tied however, as Cain’s one point lead falls within the poll’s +/-4.9 percentage point margin of error.
Cain’s finish shows a significant gain of support in Iowa, as he scored just 10 percent in the Register’s first poll held in June. Romney’s support relatively stayed the same.
