Santorum: 'We'll see how' Cain campaign deals with allegations

Rochester, New Hampshire (CNN) - Herman Cain's campaign will have to deal with the allegations of sexual harassment dogging his election effort, former Sen. Rick Santorum said Monday, but he refused to comment on the details.

"All of these issues are issues that are going to be talked about," Santorum told CNN outside his "Faith, Family and Freedom" town hall in Rochester. "Every campaign has their issues they have to deal with and we'll see how they deal with it."

A woman came forward Monday to accuse Cain of sexually harassing her while he was head of the National Restaurant Association. She is the only woman to speak publicly, though her appearance came after media reports about at least three women who have accused Cain of inappropriate behavior when he led the Washington-based trade association.

The Cain campaign has denied the allegations and chastised the media for reporting on the story.

Santorum refused to weigh in on the allegations, saying he would focus on his own election effort instead. He did, however, take a dig at Cain's conservative credentials.

"Herman and I have some very deep disagreements on policy, whether it's tax policy or abortion or the Second Amendment," he said. "And I'll focus on that."

Cain came under conservative fire last month when he suggested to CNN's Piers Morgan that in some cases, abortion should be a choice left up to families. He later declared he was emphatically against abortion rights.
