San Francisco, California (CNN) - Newt Gingrich will be joined by another Georgia political heavyweight when he travels to that state later this week.
Gingrich spokesman R.C. Hammond confirms that businessman and former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain will campaign with the former Georgia congressman Saturday. There will be a rally in Cobb County Saturday afternoon. Earlier in the day, Gingrich holds two town halls in Forsyth and Gwinnett counties. He will kick off his visit with a rally in Peachtree City Friday evening.

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.

Lock up your wives, daughters, and female staff members, the Newt & Herm Tag Team is coming to town!
that's it Newter. You are DONE. This is like Michael Corleone saying to Fredo...."I know it was you. You broke my heart" before giving him the kiss of death
This is hilarious!!!! Didn't Cain spoof with Colbert in S.C.? Newt is done.
The womanizer promoting the womanizer...they can tell each other stories about their conquests....in the 1974 Newt Gingrich's campaign manager kept catching Newt doing the "wild thing" with campaign aids on the table in Newt's campaign office..when he was married to his first wife...
Not surprised to see the family values wife cheaters sticking up for each other.
...Gingrich will be joined by another Georgia political heavyweight...
Doesn't anyone proofread? It is suppose to be 'another overweight Georgia politician'.
Loser one meet loser two!
You.....gotta.....be.....kidding! If I was a Republican I think I would put on a false hair piece, a fake nose and dark glasses to hide my identity and embarrassment.
Really????? Who cares!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
"Uncle Tom" Cain is going to Georgia with Newt to make sure he locks in the 2 votes from the 2 black voters who would vote for Newt on super Tuesday.
The trouble with Newt Gingrich keep having Loser keep trying to help him. It like one loser go out and talk about another loser.
Awww, how nice. They can play pass the mistress and everything! This just keeps getting better. Obama will not even have anyone to run against come election time. Thanks, dummies.
Obama 2012! The GOP is making this too easy.
It is a good thing that Cain isn't a woman, he could become wife no 4 5 6.depending on Newts memory. This is Newt last ploy,after this boon doggle he may become a Pizza delivery guy for Cain.They deserve one another.
Great team ,
They both loves the ladys !
The blind leading the blind.
Ahhhhhh shuckey duckey.
The reality must be sinking in at the level of the GOP establishment that they are headed to certain disaster in November with any of the flawed candidates currently running. I just wonder who the GOP leadership is leaning on to be the "rabbit pulled out of the hat" of a brokered convention. It will be a tough sale though. The GOP deep pockets are going to be reluctant to support just any old tarnished retreads. And one has to imagine that the top tier candidates are looking toward 2016–assuming, accurately, that Obama will win this race. Today's capitulation by the House GOP on FICA tax and Unemployment benefits is one more acknowledgement of a failed strategy and the first step back from the precipice of potential disaster in the House and Senate contests as well. The bad news for the GOP: the electorate has already formed an opinion of the GOP as too rich, too intolerant and unconcerned with the plight of the middle class.
I don't think that either one really make sense for the presidency. The fact that one is cheering for the other doesn't help things. The idea that we could have a flat tax doesn't work. Calling Obama a socialist is wrong as well. This is just a touch of what is wrong with them.
Oh OH...Here..... comes the pizza pie guy..huh?...Don't expect a tip from me dude for the delivery ..even though the pizza is hot.. really hot..
Cain may end up winning three or four primaries without even campaigning at the rate the GOBP deathcult is imploding.
