Herman Cain, former GOP presidential candidate, hospitalized with coronavirus

Former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain has tested positive for COVID-19 and was admitted to a hospital, according to a report.

Cain, 74, the former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, is doing well and is not on a ventilator, his staff told Newsmax, the conservative media outlet he joined as a contributor in April.

He hosts the weekend show “Herman Cain’s America” on Newsmax TV.

In 2006, Cain was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer, which had spread to his liver, and was given a 30 percent chance of survival, the outlet reported, saying he remains cancer-free.

Cain, who led the pizza company from 1986 to 1996, also served as chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City.

In 2011, he announced his candidacy for the White House and  advocated for a tax reform program he dubbed the “9-9-9” tax plan.

He suspended his run amid sexual misconduct allegations, which he denied.

In April 2019, President Trump planned to nominate Cain to the Federal Reserve Board but later said he would remove his name from consideration.
