Cain Wins Prime Seating at Dartmouth Debate

Herman Cain isn’t just rising in the polls, he’s also climbing up in the seating chart. ABC News has learned that Cain will be seated next to Mitt Romney in tomorrow night’s Washington Post/ Bloomberg debate at Dartmouth, N.H.

The seating arrangement is based on standings in national polls. And since Cain has been running second (or even tied for first) in recent polling, he has nudged Rick Perry out of the seat next to Romney. Given the heated back and forth between the Romney and Perry campaigns, maybe the separation will do them good?
