DES MOINES, Iowa | Most Americans haven't heard of Herman Cain, the former head of a chain of pizza restaurants who is considering seeking the Republican presidential nomination. But in Iowa, home to the nation's first presidential caucuses, Cain has caught the attention of conservative activists influenced by the Tea Party movement who aren't bothered by candidates who have succeeded in business but have never held a public office. Cain, 65, from suburban Atlanta, had a series of high-profile business positions that culminated with part ownership of the Godfather's Pizza restaurants. He left the company in 1996. !~ By The Associated Press
