(NECN) – Herman Cain has formally endorsed Mitt Romney for president of the United States.

Cain said the Tea Party will be more effective in 2012 than it was in 2008.

“This is about unity, and today I want to formally endorse Governor Mitt Romney for president of the United States of America,” said Cain. “For unity. We as conservatives know that in order to win, we have got to rally around our nominee. I have said that all along. That I am going to support, as Rep. Bachmann, as Rep. King has said, our eventual nominee, and it is clear Governor Mitt Romney is going to be the Republican nominee, so I wanted to formally endorse him today for president of the United States of America.”

Cain said he also is formally endorsing Romney because a lot of people are not as excited about the process or the ultimate nominee.

“It’s real simple. Governor Romney gets it right on the big issues. President Obama gets it wrong on all of the big issues. That’s why we have got to have a different occupant of the White House.”
