Cain after Florida win: 'This is what you call momentum'

After his upset victory in Florida’s Presidency 5 Straw Poll on Saturday, Herman Cain sent a short video message to his supporters.

"Folks, this is what you call momentum. This is a great achievement and it is because of the work of everybody on this team. Thank you," Cain said. "The Herman Cain train is picking up steam."

The Georgia businessman won more votes than the Republican primary's frontrunners -- Texas Gov. Rick Perry and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney -- combined.

The former Godfather’s Pizza CEO captured 37 percent of the vote, while Perry took 15 percent and Romney took 14 percent.
