Hanover, New Hampshire (CNN) — Republican presidential rivals debated economic issues on Tuesday night and Herman Cain, the latest of the 2012 candidates to surge to the top of polls, found the bulls-eye painted on him.
Cain’s “9-9-9” plan to restructure the tax code was the target Tuesday with rivals saying the plan was unrealistic and had little chance of being adopted. Cain’s economic credentials were also questioned.
