Herman Cain is feeling left behind by his party.
Herman Cain said the Republican Party has a branding problem.
“The RNC sent out a flyer to some of its members talking about potential 2016 presidential candidates. Do you know what they had in common? … ,” he said. “They were all white.” Where was Allen West. Where was Dr. Ben Carson. And have they ruled out the possibility that I might consider another run?”
None of this should surprise Herman Cain. If he kept his eyes open he would have seen that people like him, Allen West, Dr. Ben Carson, and other minorities’ sole purpose is to be used as props. They generally have no power or say in the direction of the Republican Party. (Source)
Response: Rep. Mel Watt resignation has created almost a dozen folks waiting in line to seek replacing him.

The four who’ve held elective office stressed their experience while two others promised to bring new voices. One dismissed his rivals as “career politicians.”
The six are running for the seat vacated by Democratic U.S. Rep. Mel Watt, who resigned this month to head the Federal Housing Finance Agency.
They are running in a special election with a May 6 primary and November general election. That coincides with this year’s regularly scheduled elections. (Source)
