(CNN) - He made headlines for smoking in a web video last week, but Herman Cain's chief-of-staff Mark Block said he'll kick his cigarette habit if his boss gets elected president.
"When he puts his hand on the Bible, sworn in as the 45th president, it's the last day that I have a smoke," said Block in an interview with The Daily Caller on Tuesday.
Block said his pledge to quit smoking was part of a bet he made with Cain.
The unusual web video last week featured the chief-of-staff lighting up after talking about Cain's unconventional campaign.
The ad prompted a wave of speculation over the purpose of the ad, while Block and Cain hit back, saying "America needs to get a sense of humor."

we have bigger fish to fry so he smokes big deal , it silly even wasting vaulable time , what kind of man is he ,
Do we really care?????
So in other words, he's going to die of lung cancer.
I don't know if anyone on this message board read Block's past. Believe me, it is something to read. It appears that Block was looking for a job in the WH if Cain won but that is not going to happen. Both of them are oldies but not goodies and should retire.
"Did the MSM hound Obama relentlessly until HE quit?"
Um yeah they did actually. But facts never get in your way.
Well in that case it would be a good idea for you mr. Block to buy stock in Phillip-Morris, since we all know that Cain will not even the Republican Primary. And yes the MSM did hound President Obama about his smoking habit DP.
Smoking is unhealthy. Quitting would only benefit Mr. Block. It's not up for negotiation. For someone running a presidential campaign, Mr. Block dose not appear to be very bright. I wonder what that says about his employer.
Woudl you believe this clown is 30 years old? Now can everyone see what smoking does to you?
I Can only assume that Mr. Block knows that Herbert will never be elected President of the United States, therefore he is not worried about having to quit smoking. LOL
Forget smoking, worry about doctors with their mis-prescribed medications.
It's too bad Block will be smoking all the way to the grave.
When he puts his hand on the Bible, sworn in as the 45th president, it's the day Hell has frozen over.
Hahahaha....this guy's a commedian also. Who would have guessed?
It would seem to be a safe proposition that you can keep on smoking, sir.
Oh ya! Mark, cigarettes do not kill it is the smoke, so long as you do not inhale. Right?
Unless he dies of cancer first.
Well, hope you have your oxygen tank on standby.
Have another cigarette Mr. Block.
I guess he will not give up the habit.
Little chance Block will have to give up smoking.
The President quit smoking and didn't need to win an election to do so.
If Herman Cain wins the presidency, I'll start smoking crack.
Democrat Party- blah blah blah, I hope he keeps smoking too, if for no other ereason than he will die soon, and its one less semi-felon infecting our political process. Too bad you're defending someone who was barred by court order from participating in Wisconsin politics because he could not grasp the concept of ethics, but, I've come to expect nothing less than blind allegiance to anti- American ideals from you and your lot.
Block was BANNED from election and campaign work in his native state of Wisconsin for 5 yrs......
Keep smoking , give Herb a few
