Herman Cain Adds Ozzie deFaria to His 'Army of Davids'
Former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain continues to remain politically active in Florida. On Tuesday, Cain added businessman Ozzie deFaria, who is running in the crowded Republican primary field looking to topple Democrat incumbent U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, to his “Army of Davids” -- candidates who agree with Cain on tax reform, namely the “9-9-9” plan. Conservative activist Joe Kaufman, who is also running in the GOP primary, was added to the “Army of Davids” earlier in the month.
"It just goes to show there's no limit to support for a good idea," Cain said in a statement. "The bottom line is that Debbie Wasserman Schultz's voting record and destructive rhetoric as leader of the Democratic National Committee are part of a big government 'Crazy Train' that candidates like Ozzie deFaria are ready, willing and able to derail, to get our nation back on the right track."
"Herman Cain's 9-9-9 will help our economy grow by making needed and necessary reforms to our tax code,” deFaria said. “The 9-9-9 plan will simplify our tax structure, generate revenue from new payers, and help drive growth in business. I look forward to working with Herman Cain and other like-minded supporters to promote and pass the 9-9-9 plan in the next Congress."
