A new political race has begun: The Herman Cain primary.
The implosion of the one-time Republican presidential frontrunner leaves his voters — and his political organization — up for grabs.
Right now, national and Florida polls show Newt Gingrich is benefitting most. He’s also trying to pick up some of Cain’s campaign team.
But nothing’s certain in a race where there have already been five frontrunners.
“If I had to vote today, I’d vote for Ron Paul,” said Francisco Gonzalez, a Tallahassee Republican who was part of the conservative tide that elevated Cain to top-tier status in the Republican Party of Florida’s Presidency 5 straw poll in September.
