Cain says no endorsement soon

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.

Within hours of Cain’s announcement, the former House speaker praised the former pizza executive’s “9-9-9” tax plan as he appealed to tea party supporters at a town hall event and book signing in New York City’s most conservative borough.

Cain suspends presidential bid

Atlanta (CNN) - Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain told supporters Saturday that he is suspending his presidential campaign, which has become hobbled in recent weeks by allegations of sexual harassment and an Atlanta woman's claim that they carried on a 13-year affair.

While he will still be able to raise and spend campaign funds because he did not officially drop out, his White House bid is effectively over.
