“He’s certainly a breath of fresh air.”

That’s Chris Winn, the chairman of the Lubbock County Republican Party,  responding to a question about Herman Cain on Lubbock’s First News on KFYO.  Cain has never held office but he leads in some polls.

“People just are having a repulsion to politicians and establishment insiders.  They’re looking for an honest statement.  What do you want to do?” Winn said.

In a Rasmussen poll, Cain leads President Obama by two points.  Winn did not endorse any  of the Republican candidates during the interview.
