Former GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain died on the morning of Thursday, July 30, after battling COVID-19 in the hospital for nearly a month.

Cain's death was announced Thursday on his Facebook page and website.

"Herman Cain – our boss, our friend, like a father to so many of us – has passed away," the statement on Cain's website said.

Cain first went to an Atlanta hospital for treatment on July 1, according to his staff.

United States President Donald Trump commented on Cain's death, saying, "My friend Herman Cain, a Powerful Voice of Freedom and all that is good, passed away this morning. Herman had an incredible career and was adored by everyone that ever met him, especially me."

First entering politics in 1996 as a senior adviser on Bob Dole's presidential campaign, Cain passed away on Thursday at the age of 74-years-old.

It was another brutally hot afternoon throughout the Tri-State; afternoon highs peaked in the mid to low 90s for our third straight day with heat indices approaching and even surpassing 100° at times earlier on. As for the remainder of the evening, one can expect much of the same - temperatures will stick around the upper 80s through at least dinnertime before dipping to 80° or so by 10PM. Winds shifting southward overnight will only allow temperatures to fall as low as the mid to low 70s throughout the Ohio Valley; we'll kick off what may end up being our hottest day in years with a morning low temperature of 73° in Evansville.
