GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain makes stop in Cincinnati

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain is making a stop in Cincinnati on Thursday.

Cain attended a luncheon at the Queen City Club in downtown Cincinnati before flying out of Lunken Airport Thursday afternoon.

He held a media availability at Lunken before heading to Ohio Christian University in Dublin.

Cain, a Georgia businessman, is surging in the polls thanks to his 9-9-9 plan, the topic of Ben Swann's latest Reality Check.

The 9-9-9 plan would scrap the current tax code and replace it with a 9 percent tax on personal income and corporations as well as a new 9 percent national sales tax.

According to a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll, Cain is now the front runner in the GOP race, passing Mitt Romney.

The poll shows that 27 percent of Republican primary voters would vote for Cain, a 22 percent jump from six weeks ago. Romney came in second with 23 percent.
