Senator Renee Unterman (R-Buford) has endorsed Herman Cain for President:
I’ve known Herman Cain for a long time… I know his integrity, his characteristics, I think he would be a good person for Washington.
[The accusations] do not concern me….I have full confidence in Herman Cain and in his capabilities…
I really have confidence that Herman Cain can do the right thing for Washington, D.C. He’s proven that he’s a good business person and I think he will take those capabilities to Washington and I think that’s what we need right now.
She later posted on Facebook:
Mr. Cain’s bold “9-9-9 Plan” will get this economy going again and create the jobs that Americans, especially Georgians, are demanding. We need a man of Mr. Cain’s character and leadership abilities to get Washington out of the way of job creators so we can get people back to work and get this country out of its $15 trillion debt.
According to Blake Aued, Cain responded:
As the sole female Republican in the Georgia Senate, I am deeply honored to have Senator Unterman’s endorsement and thank her for her distinguished leadership in Georgia.
I’m pretty sure Cain is not the sole female Republican in the Georgia Senate, however.
When I spoke to Senator Unterman at the Capitol today, she told me had spoken to Cain and that he had denied the charges, and that she believes that operatives from both parties are trying to take Cain out of the race.
