One-time Newt Gingrich rival Herman Cain officially endorsed Gingrich Saturday night at the Lincoln Day Dinner at the Kravis Center, calling Gingrich a patriot and saying he’s not afraid of bold ideas.

“I know that Speaker Gingrich is a patriot, Speaker Gingrich is not afraid of bold ideas,” Cain said. “I also know Speaker Gingrich is running for president and going through this sausage grinder, and I know what this sausage grinder is all about. I know that he’s going through this sausage grinder because he cares about the future of the United States of America.”
