Conservative Radio Host and Former Candidate DIES of Coronavirus

In this cruel world, all good things come to an end, and they often do so in incredible fashion.

Such is the life of Herman Cain, who succumbed to COVID-19 today in Atlanta.

Herman Cain, the former Republican presidential candidate and affable business magnate, died Thursday after being hospitalized for coronavirus.

Cain, 74, first went to an Atlanta hospital for treatment on July 1, his staff had said.

His death was announced on Herman Cain’s website and Facebook page.

“Herman Cain – our boss, our friend, like a father to so many of us – has passed away,” the statement on his website said, noting there were “hopeful indicators” in recent days that he’d recover but adding: “And yet we also felt real concern about the fact that he never quite seemed to get to the point where the doctors could advance him to the recovery phase.”

Newsmax, which Cain recently joined, also posted an obituary confirming he died Thursday. Cain also was a Fox News contributor for years.

Cain was quickly chastised online, after contracting the coronavirus just a week after attending the most recent Trump rally, held controversially in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
