Former Republican Presidential Candidate Herman Cain has died from coronavirus, according to a post on his website. The businessman and right-wing media personality was 74 years old.

"Herman Cain – our boss, our friend, like a father to so many of us — has passed away," Dan Calabrese, the editor for Cain's website, wrote in a post on Thursday morning.

Cain was hospitalized with COVID-19 on June 29. Calabrese wrote that Cain knew "that this was going to be a rough fight" when he was first hospitalized, particularly since he had already survived a cancer diagnosis and was in a vulnerable demographic because of his age and health.

During the 2011 Presidential Campaign, Cain became famous for his "9-9-9 plan," a controversial proposal to replace the tax code with a 9% business transactions tax, a 9% personal income tax, and a 9% federal sales tax. Cain suspended his campaign in December 2011 after he was accused by several women of sexual harassment during his tenure as CEO of the National Restaurant Association. He denied all allegations.
