July 31, 2020
Herman Cain, a former Republican presidential candidate, died at age 74 from COVID-19 complications, a spokesperson confirmed on Thursday.
“Herman Cain — our boss, our friend, like a father to so many of us — has passed away,” Cain’s website editor, Dan Calabrese, said in a post.
"We knew when he was first hospitalized with COVID-19 that this was going to be a rough fight," Calabrese said. "He had trouble breathing and was taken to the hospital by ambulance. We all prayed that the initial meds they gave him would get his breathing back to normal, but it became clear pretty quickly that he was in for a battle."
