As Herman Cain went from obscurity to a leading Republican presidential candidate following well-received debate performances, the campaign infrastructure of the former pizza company executive, who has never held office, remained fit for a political novice.
An independent group raising money in the name of Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain has close ties to operatives with a history of enriching themselves by drawing money from conservative donors that goes largely to the fundraisers and not the campaigns.
Jordan Gehrke, the group's campaign director, said the official paperwork will register it as the 9-9-9 Fund, though it will do business as Americans for Herman Cain.
"I saw the need and decided to try to fill it," said Mr. Gehrke.
