Northbrook,IL (PRWEB) December 05, 2011
An online community created in support of Herman Cain for president has now shifted its allegiance to Congressman Ron Paul, notes Revolution PAC. The administrator of HermanCainForums.com, a website with more than 18,000 registered members, publicly endorsed Rep. Paul Saturday following news that Cain dropped from the Republican primary race.
“I had always liked a lot of what Ron Paul advocates. I don't agree with him on everything but probably 90 percent,” the administrator, identified by the screen name 'Constitution,' said in a post Saturday. “I am going to encourage all Ron Paul supporters to come here and openly support Ron Paul … He is now my new official candidate for president.”
Cain suspended his presidential campaign earlier that day in the wake of multiple allegations against him of sexual harassment and news an alleged extramarital affair.
The HermanCainForums.com founder says he is backing Rep. Paul despite calls to throw his support behind Newt Gingrich. In the same Saturday post, the individual refuses support to Gingrich because he is said to favor individual mandates, support the Patriot Act, have taken millions from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac while touting the companies’ stability, have taken more than $35 million via his think tank from health care industry lobbies that supported individual mandates, have supported the bailout and support global warming/climate change.
"Congressman Paul is continuously drawing new support based on the unparalleled strength and consistency of his message," explains Revolution PAC Chair Gary Franchi. "We welcome all former Herman Cain supporters to the Ron Paul Revolution!"
Ron Paul continues to measure up well to Barack Obama in Iowa in head-to-head matchups. According to an NBC-Marist survey conducted Nov. 27-29 among 2,896 registered voters, Paul ties Obama, with each candidate garnering 42 percent of the vote. Paul’s Republican rivals fare significantly worse against the presumed Democrat nominee.
Revolution PAC is supporting Ron Paul’s consistent, constitutional message with targeted TV advertising, direct mail campaigns and innovative Web promotions complemented by billboards and radio ads in key primary states. Unlimited donations by individuals, businesses and organizations are being accepted by Revolution PAC to support that effort.
