Herman Cain touched upon the issue of energy independence at a luncheon hosted by the Republican Women of Las Vegas in Nevada:
I agree with Governor Rick Perry that we need an energy independence plan. I was talking about that before he decided to run.
We’ve got the energy in this country to be energy independent. It is not only an economic imperative. It is a national security imperative.
And we’re working on putting together a plan to do that. But just unleashing the energy sector isn’t all that we need to do. We need to unleash all sectors of this economy, which is what I will plan to do.
