Herman Cain is reportedly “reassessing” his presidential campaign in the aftermath of the Ginger White affair allegations, and expects to make a decision in the next few days as to whether to continue in the race for the Republican nomination.
Cain’s campaign was rocked on Monday by the allegations from White, who claims that she allegedly had a relationship with Cain for more than a decade. The allegations come just weeks after Cain brushed off other allegations regarding his conduct with women, and although those allegations did not do as much damage to his campaign as some people expected, the new allegations could finish his presidential bid, whether or not they are true.
Some people are now assuming that the Cain campaign is dead and buried. That might be the case, but it’s too early to be sure. Cain survived the previous set of allegations and it’s not impossible that he could survive the Ginger White claims. The main difference is that during the first allegations, Cain was considered the main rival to Mitt Romney. Now that Newt Gingrich has surged ahead, it might be that the conservative media views Cain as surplus to requirements.
