Cain Continues to Reassess

 

Republican Herman Cain says he’s continuing to reevaluate the future of his presidential campaign. NHPR’s Josh Rogers reports Cain says he needs to talk to his wife before deciding if he stays in the race. 

Herman Cain called the allegation he’d been involved in a long-term extramarital affair “trumped up” and said it showed the length his opponents would go to derail his campaign.

Cain spokesman J.D. Gordon says the campaign then told the Union Leader the candidate could not take a full hour.

"We wanted to do the ed board for 20 minutes.  But the Union Leader decided that wasn’t worth it so they cancelled it this morning.”
