Herman Cain Campaign Releases Finance Report

Steve Pope/Getty Images(STOCKBRIDGE, Ga.) -- With the July 15 Federal Election Commission financial reporting deadline approaching, Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain has released his first campaign finance report.

According to a release from the Cain campaign, the former chairman and CEO of Godfather’s Pizza has raised over $2.46 million and his campaign is debt free.

“I am pleased to announce that our campaign has absolutely no debt,” Cain said in a statement.

“In my career as a business executive, I employed sound economic principles of fiscal responsibility that I will maintain throughout my campaign. I hope to set an example to those in Washington who should be doing the same,” he went on to say.

Campaign officials say Cain has received contributions from over 27,000 individuals from all 50 states, with donations ranging from $1 to $2,500.

“I am humbled by the trust so many have put in me and assure them I will never forget where I come from, what I stand for and what matters to us as Americans,” Cain said.
