Cain says he feels confident that a conservative agenda will prevail in 2012.

"And I happen to believe that we are going to succeed in taking our government back. We are going to succeeed at taking control of the Senate. We are going to succeed at putting a conservative in the White House," Cain said.

Herman Cain faces a potentially packed field of Republicans to challenge President Obama next year.
