Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain was greeted by a raucous crowd during a stop at Roane State Community College on Saturday.
“Thank you for being here, because this is a collection of patriots, and patriots want to take back this nation,” said the candidate, who recently emerged as a leader among Republican hopefuls.
His audience came from near and far.
“I’m interested in what Herman Cain has to say,” said Roane County resident Ed Harper.
That was also what brought Susan Clifton of Maryville to the event.
