U.S. presidential candidate Herman Cain appeared at the "Rock Me Like a Herman Cain South Cain-Olina Primary Rally" on Friday and quoted even more of the Pokémon song that he (in)famously reused during his campaign last year.

Update: With results from 90% of the precincts, The New York Times newspaper reported that Cain received 5,525 votes or 1.0% of the total as of 10:00 p.m. EST.
Update 2: With results from 100% of the precincts, The New York Times newspaper reported that Cain received 6,326 votes or 1.1% of the total.
