Gloria Cain to head ‘Women for Herman Cain’

Gloria Cain has never had any official role on her husband’s campaign, but she has one now. Cain has been named the the National Chairperson of Women for Herman Cain, “an online national fellowship of women dedicated to helping elect Herman Cain as the next President of the United States.”

Cain is set to meet with his wife on Friday to discuss the future of his candidacy. He has said that his wife did not know that he was giving money to Ginger White, the woman who has claimed that she had a 13-year casual affair with him.

According to the “Women for Herman Cain” Web site:

“Gloria Cain is the National Chairperson for “Women for Cain” and is the very special woman who Mr. Cain devoted his life to many years ago. Mr. Cain and Gloria celebrated their 43rd wedding anniversary earlier this year. The couple has two children and three grandchildren and a legacy of family, friends, and community and church involvement.

‘Women For Cain’ was formed to inspire a national women’s alliance in support of Herman Cain 2012 and Friends of Herman Cain. Please join our conversation to learn of volunteer opportunities and to be informed of issues and events surrounding the Herman Cain campaign.

Thank you for your support. We welcome your thoughts and encouragement for Mr. Cain. We also welcome your involvement in our effort to renew America with the common-sense solutions and principled leadership that Mr. Cain provides. Join us as we work to bring true opportunity and prosperity to all Americans.”
