Cain to CNN: 'A decision in the next several days'

Dayton, Ohio (CNN) - Embattled Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain is keeping mum on whether he will remain in the race for the GOP nomination.

When asked by CNN if he is vowing to continue his campaign, Cain declined to give a direct response.

"We are reassessing and reevaluating," Cain said.

Cain said he would have a final answer about his future plans soon.

"We will be making a decision in the next several days," Cain said.

Cain made the comments as he was greeting voters along a security ropeline after a speech in Dayton, Ohio.

The candidate did not make himself available for additional questions.

In his speech, Cain told voters he is the victim of "character assassination." But he made no emphatic promise to stay in the race. Several supporters in the crowd urged him to fight on.

    Did anyone notice that we learned of this most recent Cain-Accuser in an exclusive interview videotaped for a Fox affiliate. In other words, the story didn't come out of the "lame stream media." It came from the folks who claim to let you decide.

    Hang in there Herb, at least until accuser number 9 steps forward.
    We'll miss the hats, the yellow ties, the gospel singing rivaled in poor quality only by the pizza you slung.
    When there's an issue and the only common denominator is Cain - blame yo'self.

    Herman should've know he was coming to an abrupt and painful end when the powers that be started praising his lousy singing.
    The man CANNOT sing his way out of a wet paper bag people.
    Let's just get THAT little fact straight while we're clearing things up.
