Should Herman Cain End His Presidential Campaign? [POLL]
The Cain Train might have derailed or at least slowed down this week.
According to multiple reports, Herman Cain is reassessing his campaign. That is a complete 180 from Monday when he told CNN that he was in the race for the long haul. Of course, that was Monday and before the 13 year affair allegations really started making their rounds. According to FOX News:
In response to the news, Cain Iowa campaign chief Steve Grubbs issued an email to supporters Tuesday saying that during a conference call earlier in the day, Cain repeated that he had tried to help White “with her problems and tried to get her on her feet financially.” He also said he was “moving ahead with the campaign” despite the emotional toll it was taking on his family.
Grubbs added that the campaign’s assessment is no different than ones made after the Iowa Straw poll and the Florida straw polls.
In an attempt to reassure backers, Grubbs said that 2008 GOP presidential candidate John McCain and former President Bill Clinton both weathered similar accusations.
Grubbs said that The New York Times also learned that White is an unemployed single mother who had previously filed a sexual harassment claim against an employer in 2001 that was settled out of court, had filed for bankruptcy and faced multiple eviction threats.
Herman Cain is probably taking in a lot of advice and he has a lot to think about. Can he still win and does he want to continue putting his family through this. What do you think Cain should do? Let us know in today’s LFN Poll of the Day.
