Barbour's Wife Backs Cain

Everything is coming up Cain. After a surge in the polls, former Godfather’s Pizza CEO Herman Cain got an unexpected supporter: Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour's wife. Barbour said his wife would vote for Cain if the primary were held today, and that if Cain is the GOP nominee, he will “sweep the South.” “He’s a straight talker, and I think that makes him very, very attractive to people," Barbour said on The Laura Ingraham Show. Barbour was cool to Rick Perry’s campaign, saying he should have gotten in earlier, and knocked Mitt Romney for his support of universal health care while governor of Massachusetts.
