Manchester, New Hampshire (CNN) – A defiant Herman Cain told former staffers Monday his endorsement was not likely to come in the next several days, and blamed his opponents and the media for causing his wife's migraine headaches and forcing him to suspend his presidential campaign, according to a source with knowledge of a Cain conference call.
On the conference call for campaign staffers, Cain said he would weigh his options carefully and would not rush to endorse one of his former opponents, the source said. He credited his policy ideas with pushing other GOP candidates, including Mitt Romney, to be bolder in their plans to overhaul Washington.
Cain suspended his campaign Saturday after a series of allegations about sexual misconduct.
Cain also said on the call he hoped to be able to pay his employees through December. He thanked them for their work and pledged to continue advancing his economic message, according to the source.
