Former presidential hopeful Herman Cain stopped by Columbus to formally endorse Sen. Josh McKoon.
McKoon is running for re-election to the Georgia state senate.
Cain kicked off the press conference Thursday saying how much he appreciates McKoon's commitment to smaller government.
Mckoon is a Columbus native who graduated from Brookstone and received a law degree from the University of Alabama.
He has represented District 29 since 2011.
