LAS VEGAS, NV — (07-30-20) — Herman Cain, conservative pundit for FOX News, former Republican presidential hopeful and who was once considered by President Donald Trump for the Federal Reserve, has died after being hospitalized with Coronavirus COVID-19. He was 74.
Cain’s death was announced Thursday on his website by Dan Calabrese, who edits the official site and who had previously written about his colleague’s diagnosis.
“Herman Cain – our boss, our friend, like a father to so many of us – has passed away,” Calabrese said in the blog post. “We all prayed so hard every day. We knew the time would come when the Lord would call him home, but we really liked having him here with us, and we held out hope he’d have a full recovery.”

Cain was among the highest-profile conservative player in the United States to have died from Covid-19. Less than two weeks before receiving his diagnosis, Cain attended Trump’s campaign rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, which had been staged despite CDC officials concerns about mass gatherings during the pandemic.
Cain, a stage 4 cancer survivor, tweeted a photograph of himself at president Trump’s rally showing him surrounded by attendees not wearing masks or any other protective gear.
