Former presidential candidate Herman Cain dead from COVID-19

Posted: Updated:

Former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain has died weeks after he was diagnosed with COVID-19, according to an announcement made Thursday on his website. He was 74.

The high-profile public figure was hospitalized in Atlanta on July 1 two days after being diagnosed with COVID-19. He was a survivor of stage-4 colon cancer.

Cain was also considered by President Trump for the Federal Reserve. His nomination to join the Federal Reserve Board was withdrawn, but he remained a vocal supporter of Trump's. 

A statement posted to Caine's website reads in part: 

"You’re never ready for the kind of news we are grappling with this morning. But we have no choice but to seek and find God’s strength and comfort to deal with it.

Herman Cain – our boss, our friend, like a father to so many of us – has passed away. He’s entering the presence of the Savior he’s served as an associate minister at Antioch Baptist Church in Atlanta for, and preparing for his reward.

Romans 2:6-7 says: “God ‘will repay each person according to what they have done.’ To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor and immortality, he will give eternal life.” By that measure, we expect the boss is in for some kind of welcome, because all of us who knew him are well aware of how much good he did."
