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.

The bitterly cold start to our Wednesday will inevitably lead to a cooler-than-average afternoon across the Tri-State. We're currently expecting an afternoon high of 26° in Evansville on Wednesday afternoon (that’s 17° below average for this time of the year). Temperatures will once again dive back down towards the teens for many of us overnight and into early Thursday. As for right now Thursday morning looks as though will be slightly warmer, but only just - believes model data indicates that we will see a morning low temperature of 14° under partly cloudy skies in Evansville tomorrow morning.
