Herman Cain rallies Republicans in Richmond

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Herman Cain is the latest GOP Presidential hopeful to audition in the battleground Commonwealth of Virginia.

Saturday, Cain rallied a crowd of about 1,000 social conservatives. Then, he spent the evening at the Richmond Convention Center, speaking at the Family Foundations annual fundraising gala.

Cain, the former Godfather's Pizza CEO, is trying to emerge from a crowded field of GOP contenders.

President Obama is expected to make four stops in Virginia later this month.
