Herman Cain And Newt Gingrich's Texts From Last Night

Posted: Updated:

Most of the time, when Herman Cain sends someone a text in the middle of the night, the rest of the world doesn't find out about it until Gloria Allred files a discovery motion. Fortunately for everyone, Cain went on Fox And Friends this morning to let everyone know about the message he sent to Newt Gingrich after last night's result in the Florida primary.

CAIN: My text message to Newt afterward was: "Congratulations. It is now a two-man race. Get some rest. Give me a call. Let's talk strategy." That was the message I sent to Newt Gingrich.

No doubt Gingrich was glad to hear from Cain, who offered the former House speaker his endorsement over the weekend, saying, “I am inspired...You are inspired.” (Later, Cain said, "Yes, I could be very comfortable with Mitt Romney," because he is new to this whole "endorsing" thing.)

At any rate, I realize that I am applying my own "HermanNewtic" to this text message, but it's impossible to not be excited by the prospect of the two handsiest men in 2012 politics going to Las Vegas to "talk strategy."
