Dancing With The Stars will not be getting an infusion of politicos — and failed Republican presidential candidates — next season.
Former GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain turned down an offer to appear on Dancing with the Stars, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and offer that was confirmed by Cain’s staff.
“He can’t dance in an eight count. He can only dance in a nine-count,” Cain staffer Lisa Reichert said, making a reference to Cain’s proposed 9-9-9 tax plan.
While Cain confirmed he was asked but the show, Michelle Bachman, meanwhile, squashed rumors that she will be joining — although it hasn’t been confirmed if an actual offer was made.
Bachman said in a statement, “In full disclosure, I did win a polka dancing competition when I was in the tenth grade at my alma mater, Anoka High School. But, despite my tenth grade polka success and my lifelong love of ballroom dancing, the recent rumors are false. I will not be joining ‘Dancing with the Stars.'”
