Cain raises more than $400k in one day; supporters call allegations 'high-tech' lynching

Washington (CNN) – Herman Cain's campaign says it raised more than $400,000 on Monday, a "clear vote of confidence from his supporters," after the story broke alleging he had been accused of sexual harassment while head of the National Restaurant Association.

"In the last 24 hours, the Friends of Herman Cain campaign has had the single best day of fundraising since the start of the campaign," Mark Block, Cain's chief of staff, said Tuesday night.

Poll: The Rubio & Clinton factor in Florida

(CNN) – Mitt Romney and Herman Cain are tied at the top in the battle for Florida's Republican primary, according to a new poll. And a Suffolk University survey of Sunshine State voters also indicates that adding Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida to the GOP ticket would change the political landscape in the key battleground state.

According to the poll, 25% of registered Republicans in Florida say they support Romney, the former Massachusetts governor who's making his second bid for the White House, with 24% backing Cain, the businessman, former Godfather's Pizza CEO and radio talk show host. Romney's one point margin is well within the survey's sampling error.

BLITZER’S BLOG: Cain keeping his head up despite controversy

Washington (CNN) - I saw Herman Cain briefly today in the CNN Washington bureau. He had just wrapped up a lengthy interview with HLN’s Robin Meade.

The Republican presidential candidate appeared to be in a good mood despite all the uproar over allegations that he sexually harassed two women back in the 1990s when he was head of the National Restaurant Association here in Washington. He had answered all of Robin’s blunt questions, clearly eager to move on.

Political Notebook: Listen as CNN’s Wolf Blitzer and Bob Costantini discuss Herman Cain’s sexual harassment revelations and what it means to his candidacy. Plus, we’ll hear from a veteran campaign reporter from New Hampshire.

Over the past couple of days, the former pizza CEO's high-flying insurgent campaign has been thrown on the defensive by the revelation of sexual harassment allegations made against him in the 1990s. Cain's account of the incident has changed multiple times, leading to accusations of a half-baked cover-up.

Obama uses executive orders as a political tool

Washington (CNN) – President Barack Obama is crafting his own laws of political physics these days, insisting that inaction by a divided Congress requires White House action in order to get something done.

A campaign labeled "We Can't Wait" pushes unilateral directives and programs from the White House as the only way to push ahead on the president's agenda when a do-nothing Congress fails to act.
