Herman Cain ‘reassessing’ candidacy after affair claim
The Herman Cain campaign is “reassessing” its strategy in the wake of a woman’s claim that she and Cain had engaged in a 13-year extramarital relationship, a senior staffer to the campaign told CBS News.
The staffer made the statement following reports that Cain told supporters Tuesday morning that he is reassessing whether to remain in the Republican presidential race.
On a conference call, Cain told his senior staff that he would make a decision on staying in the race “over the next several days,” according to National Review.
And the Des Moines Register reports that Cain said on the call that he needs to decide if the affair allegation creates “too much of a cloud” for him to continue his run.
“If a decision is made, different than we should plow ahead, you all will be the first to know,” Cain reportedly said on the 90-person conference call.
