Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain denounced Rep. Andre Carson’s allegations that the tea party is racist, saying Democrats are stooping to a new low in using the race card.

The Indiana Democrat’s recent speech including the comment that some tea party members of Congress would like to see blacks “hanging on a tree” was “despicable,” Cain said during an interview on Fox News Wednesday night.

"It was disgusting, and it was desperate,” the businessman said of Carson’s comments. “The Democrats have no results to run on. They have no plans that are working . . . The president has broken a lot of promises. All they have left is name-calling to try and intimidate those that might associate with the tea party or that are affiliated with the tea party.”

Democrats “have taken the race card to a new low, and it’s going to backfire,” Cain said. “The American people are sick and tired of the race card and class warfare card."
