MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Presidential hopeful and pizza executive Herman Cain is set to make a trip to the state of Alabama. A tentative date of October 28th is scheduled.

While in Alabama, Cain is set to attend several events in Anniston, Talladega and Birmingham. He'll be in the Magic City to stop by GOP Headquarters where he'll sign papers to qualify to run for President in Alabama.


Cain says he "won't be a flavor of the week" and his sudden climb to the top of GOP presidential polls will last.

A recent spate of polls showed Cain joining Mitt Romney and Rick Perry in the top GOP tier.

Cain said Sunday that his signature 9-9-9 tax plan would lower taxes for most Americans, but conceded some middle-class-Americans might pay more. The plan would scrap the current federal tax code and replace it with 9% rates for personal income and corporate taxes and add a 9% national sales tax.

Many independent analysts say Cain's plan would lower taxes on the rich and raise them for many middle class Americans, but the Georgia businessman disputed those doubts on NBC's "Meet the Press."
