Herman Cain, the former Republican presidential candidate, has died after being hospitalized with COVID-19.
It’s not clear when or where the 74-year-old was infected, but he was hospitalized less than two weeks after attending Donald Trump’s campaign rally in Tulsa June 20.
Cain, not seen wearing a face covering in available pictures of the event, did not meet with the president there.
He went to an Atlanta-area hospital for treatment July 1.
An outspoken supporter of Trump, the former executive of Godfather’s Pizza, Burger King and Pillsbury, was named by the campaign as a co-chair of the political group ”Black Voices for Trump.”
Cain briefly topped the polls during the 2012 race for the GOP presidential campaign.
