Gloria Etchison Herman Cain Wife/ Gloria Etchison Wiki
Gloria Etchison is the wife to Herman Cain, the two married on 23rd June 1968. She keeps off the public spotlight but has been described as “gentle” and “the nicest woman you’ll ever meet” and people frequently remark on her faith and dedication to her husband and her family.
No information about Gloria can be found online apart from what Cain writes about her in his book ‘This Is Herman Cain!: My Journey to the White House’. In the book, Cain devoted a chapter which is 3 1/2-pages long. The chapter begins: “Gloria Etchison was beautiful. Let’s face it; I was first attracted by her looks. And then I figured out she was also smart.”
In the chapter, he writes that the two first saw each other on the street corner near the family-owned grocery store where he worked as a college freshman. Gloria was walking down the street with a high school friend of his. It would be almost a year before the two went out on their first date – to the movies – while she was attending Morris Brown College and he was at Morehouse College.
“It was magic from that moment on, and so I didn’t go out with anyone else. Neither did Gloria.”

Gloria Etchison Had Minimal Appearance During Herman Cain 2012 Presidential Campaigns
During Herman’s presidential run in 2011, Gloria was absent in the campaign forefront. She only appeared with her husband as he announced his presidential run in May.
Herman had said in an interview that Gloria wouldn’t be on the campaign trail on daily basis.
“You will meet my wife publicly in an exclusive interview that we are currently planning and anticipating, but you won’t see my family out on the campaign trail on a day-to-day basis.
My wife represents that calm and tranquillity that I look forward to seeing when I get home. She will be introduced in terms of some limited exposure, but it’s not her style for her to be with me on every campaign stop because, number one, it’s gruelling, and I want her to continue to be the nucleus for that calm and tranquillity that you want for your family. I’m an unconventional candidate, as you know, and we’re running an unconventional campaign, and the involvement of my family is also going to be unconventional, although you will see them on a selected basis.”
In Herman’s book “This Is Herman Cain! My Journey to the White House,” he writes that Gloria prefers to stay at home in Atlanta. He also wrote in another part that she was not thrilled when he first declared he wanted to run for president.
“she didn’t immediately jump up and down and cheer. In fact, she was terrified! Scared to death! That was because of the widely held perception of what it’s like to be in politics — of what it can do to your family and to you, the candidate.”
He ends the chapter by calling his wife totally supportive, though she does not campaign with him, and describing their love as “priceless.”
Gloria Defends Herman Cain Against Sexual Assault Claims
In 2011 while running as Republican presidential candidate in 2012 Cain was accused of sexual assault, the allegation dated to the 1990s when he was head of the National Restaurant Association. Gloria came to his defence and during an interview, she said: “I’m thinking he would have to have a split personality to do the things that were said. To hear such graphic allegations and know that that would have been something that was totally disrespectful of her as a woman, and I know that’s not the person he is. He totally respects women.”
