Cain backs Gingrich's presidential bid

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Former presidential hopeful Herman Cain is backing Newt Gingrich's White House bid.

   Cain endorsed his fellow Georgian Saturday, just days before Florida's primary, at a GOP fundraiser.

   Gingrich was also slated to speak to the group later Saturday night.

   Gingrich, a former House speaker, is in a fierce fight for Tuesday's Florida's GOP primary with Mitt Romney.

   Cain, a favorite of the tea party and a former pizza executive, left the race before the first nominating contests facing accusations of unwanted sexual advances. He remains popular, however, and would be a late boost for Gingrich.
