Cain Suspends Presidential Campaign
ATLANTA (TheStreet) -- Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain Saturday said he was suspending his campaign because it had been negatively affected by allegations of sexual harassment and an extramarital affair.
In a speech to supporters, Cain called the allegations "false" and "unproved," but he said they had hurt his family and hindered his campaign's ability to raise money.
Cain said that while he was suspending his "plan A" of becoming president, he would now turn to "plan B," in which he will "continue to be a voice" for the American people and continue to promote his 9-9-9 tax plan.
