Campaign 2012 is heating up as Herman Cain, a radio talk show host and former CEO of Godfather's Pizza, announced on Saturday his candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination. (SOUNDBITE) (English) BUSINESSMAN AND CANDIDATE FOR REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL NOMINATION HERMAN CAIN SAYING: "We've got alot of work to do but I believe we can do this. If I didn't believe we could do this I wouldn't be doing it. So we all got to do a little bit more. We all got to work a little bit harder in order to take back this country. It's going to be tough. I'm up for the fight. I'm up for the challenge and I know that you are too." The 65-year-old resident of Atlanta, Georgia has never held political office, but made an unsuccessful bid for the U.S. Senate in 2004. (SOUNDBITE) (English) BUSINESSMAN AND CANDIDATE FOR REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL NOMINATION HERMAN CAIN SAYING: "We're not going to convert everybody to our conservative way of thinking. We're not going to sell everybody on our new vision. We're new leadership, new people, new ways to think about it because a good friend told me once all you can do is save the saveable." Political analysts do not put Cain in the top tier of Republican presidential hopefuls. Jon Decker, Reuters.
