Former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain has died in Atlanta at the age of 74.

Cain first went to an Atlanta hospital July 1 where he was diagnosed with Covid-19.  Health officials say he was in a high risk group due to his history with cancer.

Cain was the former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza and a syndicated columnist.  He was also co-chair of Black Voices for Trump.  Cain had recently attended a rally for Trump in Tulsa, Oklahoma, though officials say they can’t confirm that Cain contracted the virus there.
