These bus trips will initially focus on the early primary states, and will standby for later assistance to other states.
"I am excited to announce these exciting and key additions to the campaign. The enthusiasm that is spreading for our campaign across the country and in our local communities is great," said Herman Cain. "And as more people hear my common sense approaches to solving the problems we face as a nation today, the more folks want to jump on the Cain Train."
