Looking, perhaps, to exert a little influence on GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, Herman Cain appeared on the Steve Gill Show on Radio America Monday morning to push Florida Rep. Allen West as Romney’s vice presidential pick.
“Here’s why," said the pizza mogul and former presidential candidate. "He is well-spoken. He is direct. People in Florida love him. He has a huge following. He is from Florida -- Florida is going to be one of those key states ... But more importantly, Colonel Allen West is a dedicated patriot; he served in the military, and he’s willing to serve his country some more.”
Cain isn't the first major Republican to suggest West for vice president, according to The Daily Caller
. Earlier this month, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said he was at the “top of her list” for that spot.
