Herman Cain

Herman Cain says his family is his number one priority as he weighs up campaign future

Is Herman Cain going to quit the Republican presidential race? He told Fox News on Wednesday that his family is his number one priority and that he’ll make a decision in the next few days. In the meantime, however, his campaign certainly seems to be going full-steam ahead.

Cain says that he is the victim of ‘character assassination’. He denies allegations of an affair with a woman named Ginger White, and he says his wife loves him even though she has taken an ’emotional toll’ as a result of the allegations. Saying that he will consult with his family and key supporters, he expects to have made a decision within a week.

Cain is in a difficult position. To some extent, it doesn’t really matter whether or not the allegations are true, because they’re already splashed across the media. If he’s to have a chance of winning the GOP nomination for 2012, Cain needs to show that he can take control of his own media narrative.
