Cain endorsed Gingrich in late January and in addition to doing media interviews on the candidate's behalf, he made one campaign stop with Gingrich in Florida ahead of the Jan. 31 primary.
Georgia is one of several states that holds its primary on March 6, Super Tuesday. The longtime Georgia resident is hoping to pick up a majority of the state's 76 delegates.
The Atlanta Journal Constitution first reported that Cain would join Gingrich in Georgia.
