Herman Cain Joins Nevada Caucus Boycott

Friday, 14 Oct 2011 07:06 PM

 

LAS VEGAS — Former pizza executive Herman Cain is adding his name to the list of Republican contenders boycotting Nevada's caucuses.

Charlie Spano is Cain's field operations director in New Hampshire and says on Friday that Cain will attend next week's debate in Las Vegas. But Cain won't participate in the state's Jan. 14 caucuses.

Spano says Cain will continue to campaign in Nevada, where he has long courted tea party supporters.

Cain is the fifth candidate to boycott Nevada's contest, joining Jon Huntsman, Michelle Bachmann, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich.

New Hampshire wants to protect its first in the nation primary contest and is urging candidates to boycott Nevada.

Nevada moved its Feb. 18 contest after Florida jumped ahead and set its primary for Jan. 31.
