Cain to make campaign announcement Saturday

ATLANTA (CNN) - Speaking about challenges his campaign has faced in recent weeks, Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain said Friday he will address the future of his presidential campaign Saturday at the scheduled opening of his new Georgia campaign headquarters.

"Tomorrow in Atlanta, I will be making an announcement," he said at a town hall meeting in Rock Hill, South Carolina. "But nobody's going to get me to make that prematurely, that's all there is to that."

8.6% unemployment rate won't help Obama (much)

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) - The November jobs report contains some undeniably good news for President Obama, but the White House should keep the champagne on ice for now.

The Labor Department reported Friday that the unemployment rate dropped to 8.6% in November, the lowest since March 2009 and a sharp improvement from 9.0% in October.

Campaign 2012: Embrace the cynicism

Capitol Hill (CNN) – One month before the Iowa caucuses, a seminal event in American democracy, excitement does not seem to be the dominant feeling among voters. Try cynicism.

Trust in government is at an all-time low. A whopping 72% of Republicans have not made up their minds on a definite candidate yet (an increase in that figure from October). And among a core group of Democrats – whites with no college education – half say they don't want President Obama on the ballot in 2012.

But voters on all sides may be more pessimistic than the situation warrants, or so says an award-winning economist. Listen here for our "Campaign Cynical" podcast or click to keep reading.

Mitt Romney - Where's the rest of him?

(CNN) – Not long ago, many pundits agreed that the Republican nomination was Mitt Romney's to lose. Now, with one recent poll showing Gingrich up a whopping 21% over Romney among likely GOP voters nationwide (and wide leads in early states like Iowa, South Carolina and Florida), it appears the former Massachusetts governor could actually lose this thing in the next few weeks. So many are asking: What's gone wrong in Boston? And what if anything might he do?

A few weeks ago, we had an opportunity to sit down with Romney for an hour and a half and to talk with his wife Ann on behalf of Parade Magazine. This Sunday the magazine will publish edited versions of their interviews, reporting among other things that Ann talked her husband into joining this race.

Obama, Clinton announce $4 billion energy investment

Washington (CNN) – President Obama announced Friday the federal government and private sector partners will invest $4 billion over the next two years in energy upgrades to buildings across the country, an initiative the White House says will create several thousand new construction jobs.

The president made the announcement on the top floor of a building currently under renovation and only steps from the White House with former President Bill Clinton at his side. The collaboration is part of the White House’s “We Can’t Wait” campaign – a series of executive orders Obama has issued over the last two months without congressional involvement.

Gingrich team rushing to build ground game in N.H.

Manchester, New Hampshire (CNN) - Newt Gingrich's New Hampshire staff strove to stem a rush of questions about the campaign's ground game in New Hampshire, a day after reports about a sloppy, incomplete official document prompted concerns about Gingrich's organization in the early voting state.

Just two weeks ago the former House speaker's campaign submitted to the secretary of state's office what looked like a scratch sheet of proposed New Hampshire delegates to the national convention, in contrast to the more complete and neatly organized lists submitted by other campaigns.
