Former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain may be out of the race, but his 15 minutes of fame are not over yet.
Fox 5 Atlanta reported Sunday that the former Godfather’s Pizza CEO is prepared to endorse Newt Gingrich on Monday.
Gingrich is planning to hold a news conference Monday at 2 p.m. ET following a meeting with business mogul Donald Trump. It wasn’t clear if the endorsement would happen at that time.
In a speech Saturday announcing he was dropping out of the race, Cain said he had spoken to several of the candidates and would endorse in the near future.
The endorsement — if it happens — will not come as a surprise because the two men have a fondness for each other, and even participated in a Lincoln-Douglas style debate together.
Gingrich released a statement praising Cain Saturday, saying he had “elevated the dialogue.”
“I am proud to know Herman Cain and consider him a friend,” Gingrich said. “I know from having worked with him for more than a decade he will continue to be a powerful voice in the conservative movement for years to come.”

Here are 7 wild, bizarre and pathetic moments from Trump’s ‘campaign launch’
On Tuesday night, President Donald Trump held a rally that was billed as the official launch his re-election campaign — though he has never really stopped holding campaign rallies.
As expected, the president ranted, lied, and engaged in the raucous attacks that are central to his connection with Republican voters. Some of it was actually just sad, such as his continued obsession with Hillary Clinton.
Here are seven of the wildest, disturbing and pathetic moments from the rally:

British PM candidates clash over Brexit as Boris Johnson skips debate
Candidates to become Britain's next prime minister clashed over Brexit strategy at their first debate on Sunday but the frontrunner, Boris Johnson, dodged the confrontation.
The 90-minute debate on Channel 4 featured the five remaining candidates and an empty podium for Johnson, the gaffe-prone former foreign secretary and former mayor of London.
In sometimes ill-tempered exchanges, four of the five candidates said they would seek to renegotiate the draft Brexit divorce deal agreed with Brussels even though EU leaders have repeatedly ruled this out.
