"I hereby officially and enthusiastically endorse Newt Gingrich for president of the United States," Cain said. "One of the biggest reasons is the fact that I know that Speaker Gingrich is a patriot, Speaker Gingrich is not afraid of bold ideas and I also know that Speaker Gingrich is running for president and going through this sausage grinder. I know what this sausage grinder is all about." 

Nine days ago, Cain endorsed "the people" for president at an event in South Carolina with comedian Stephen Colbert.
