Cain’s unorthodox strategy doesn’t focus on Iowa or N.H.
Before scandal, biggest challenge was breaking mold
Rules may be made to be broken, but Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain appears to be trying to rewrite the book, ignoring the axiom that face time with voters in Iowa and New Hampshire is an essential step toward winning the party’s nomination. The former business executive is charting the most unconventional course of this, or perhaps any other, campaign season. Cain, who has soared in recent polls, over the last three months has all but blown off Iowa and New Hampshire - which will hold the first nominating contests in January.
