Herman Cain speaks at a rally for Newt Gingrich at the Tampa Jet Center on Jan. 30. He returns to Tampa tonight to the River at Tampa Bay Church.

Businessman and former presidential front-runner Herman Cain will be among the speakers at Unity Rally 2012 tonight at 7 at the River at Tampa Bay Church, 3738 River International Drive, near the intersection of Interstate 75 and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.

The event, scheduled one day before the start of the Republican National Convention, is free and open to the public. It also will feature U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., syndicated radio host Neal Boortz and Wisconsin Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch.

The rally is a collaborative effort of Unity Rally Coalitions, made up of several groups such as the Tea Party Nation and TheTeaParty.net.

"We are excited to see Herman Cain join us at Unity Rally 2012 as he has played an important role in unifying tea parties and grass roots from across the country," said Tiffany Ruegner, executive director of TheTeaParty.net. "Our members are traveling from far and wide to show their support and demonstrate the citizens' resolve to be heard."
