Washington, Dec 3 : Republican Presidential contender Herman Cain is ‘leaning toward suspending the campaign,’ multiple sources familiar with discussions on his White House bid have claimed.
According to Politico, a source close to the matter revealed that Cain would probably get out of the race, but added that nothing’s been decided.
According to another source, the two options Cain is weighing are “continuing forward with the campaign, or suspending the campaign.”
“But Cain may still decide to fight. Either way, Cain has made clear he is not conceding the allegations against him are true, and also that he plans to keep fighting to clear himself somehow, although it’s not clear what form that would take,” the source added.
Cain, who was in the process of “reassessing” his candidacy in the wake of series of sexual assault allegations, is scheduled to address supporters at the opening of his Georgia state headquarters today.
Meanwhile, it has become clear is that some of Cain’s advisers want him to keep going, the paper said.
Cain’s campaign spokesman J. D. Gordon pushed back on the rumors that the candidate would likely leave the race.
“I don’t know where they are getting their information,” Gordon said referring to Cain’s comments on Fox News that he would make a decision by Monday. (ANI)
