Herman Cain Dies of COVID-19 After Attending Trump's Tulsa Rally

He was later admitted to an Atlanta-area hospital on July 1 for COVID-19.

"Masks will not be mandatory for the event, which will be attended by President Trump". He advocated for a sweeping tax reform plan that he called "9-9-9" which would have replaced nearly all current taxes with a 9% income tax, a 9% corporate tax and a 9% national sales tax.

Cain, 74, was diagnosed with the disease in late June and later hospitalised after attending a Tulsa, Oklahoma, rally for President Donald Trump, where many attendees crowded close together without wearing face masks to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.

He also kept involved in conservative politics as a commentator on Newsmax, which was the first media outlet to report his death on Thursday.

Mr Cain had enjoyed good health in recent years, Mr Calabrese wrote, but added that a previous diagnosis with cancer meant "he was still in a high-risk group" in the current pandemic.

Cain served as a director of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City from 1992 to 1996.

White House spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany tweeted on Thursday that Cain "embodied the American Dream and represented the very best of the American spirit".

In speeches, on talk radio and on the trail, Mr. Cain often spoke about growing up poor in Georgia, telling of how his father worked three jobs to buy a house for the family. He grew up in Atlanta and graduated from Morehouse College with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics in 1967. He rose to take charge of his region, and Pillsbury asked him to help turn around the Godfather's chain, which he eventually joined. Cain suspended his campaign in December 2011 after he was accused by several women of sexual harassment during his tenure as CEO of the National Restaurant Association. After moving back to his native Georgia, he ran for U.S. Senate as a Republican in 2004.

Herman Cain, then a GOP presidential candidate, holds a muffin bearing his catchphrase "9-9-9" tax plan at the National Press Club in Washington in 2011. "It haunted me for three days that someone would dare tell me what party affiliation I should have".

Cain is survived by his wife, Gloria Etchison, their children and grandchildren.
