CHICAGO - Former Godfather's Pizza CEO and author Herman Cain will be in Chicago October 3rd to fundraise for GOP candidate for U.S. Senate Jim Oberweis. Recent polls show Oberweis closing in on incumbent U.S. Senator Dick Durbin.
Cain, who is now featured on radio talk shows heard on Illinois stations in Quincy and Carbondale, was at one point a leading contender for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination. He continues to be a leadership voice for black conservatives.
There will be a VIP reception held at a private home in Inverness, followed by an open reception at the Stonegate Conference Center in Hoffman Estates. Individual tickets will be $50 to the Stonegate reception, starting at 7:00 PM.
