GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) - Herman Cain's "Road To Renewal" campaign made a stop near Lambeau Field Monday. The GOP front runner has been losing ground over the last couple weeks after allegations of sexual harassment.


"Some people have convicted me in the court of public opinion," Cain said. "And I can't do a thing about it."


Cain met with tailgaters and took questions from the media. When asked about an incident earlier Monday in Milwaukee, when he appeared to stumble over a question regarding his stance on foreign policy and Libya, Cain said the matter has been blown out of proportion.


"Nothing happened," he explained. "I mean, they asked me a question about Libya, and I paused so I could gather my thoughts. It's really complimentary when people start documenting my pauses."


Cain supporters at the event praised the conservative businessman, and said someone new needs to get the country out of its financial mess.


"I like that he's an average American," said Judy Fallos. "I think he thinks like a lot of us do and I appreciate that."


"He has worked his way up from the bottom," said Chuck Fallos. "He's built companies and turned around companies. Right now our country needs to be turned around."

Those at the event told Channel 5 more candidates will probably visit the area over the next year because Wisconsin will be seen as a key battleground state.
