Cain to meet with supporters and donors before Saturday announcement

(CNN) - Herman Cain has invited top supporters and donors to meet with him Saturday in Atlanta before he announces the fate of his campaign at an event there, CNN has confirmed.

A supporter, who is attending the session, told CNN the attendees are expecting the GOP presidential candidate to tell them during the meeting whether or not he will continue with his campaign.

"It would be the expectation," the source told CNN. The source refused to speak on the record because the scheduled meeting is private. The Washington Post first reported the meeting had been scheduled.

This source did not want to make a guess about what Cain will decide.

The meeting is expected to take place mid-day in Atlanta.

    I would pay to watch those meetings. I bet that he could raise millions if he put it on Pay-Per-View.

    My new name for him is perv Uncle Hermie. The one who shows up at the family gatherings and you don't let your daughters sit next to him.
    So he just sent money to this woman friend for 13 years? And upgraded another woman's hotel room to a suite that he payed for. Does anyone out there see how stinky this is?

    "Ginger White will be his first lady pick?"

    No, but she will be singing him happy birthday if he wins.

    Getting out is all the result of Cain's trying to get in!

    To thanks his staff and supports, but that he is pulling out of the race. That would be the perfect answer, but you never know

    he will not pull out of the race because he wants to remain relevant, he does not want to give up all the money some fools are giving him, and he does not want to give up the secret service protecting him that we are paying for

    Cain: You've got 9 hours, 9 minutes and 9 seconds to get out of this race.

    It is amusing that he keeps denying these things that he knowingly did. My guess would be that it is his fault. I wonder what he will say when another woman steps forward. I think it is time for this clown to exit gracefully and take a long vacation from the public eye. If he is lucky he will join his buddy "Appalachian trail" Sanford at Fox.

    The choice he is giving is simple. If you keep giving me your money, I'll continue to run, even though I have no chance. Hey, after all it is your money I'm throwing away, not mine.

    The guy needs to go—he is obviously a coc* hound who has very poor judgement not to mention he is NOT qualified to be Commander in Chief and is woefully ignorant on foreign policy and national security issues. I always thought he was arrogant and full of himself ( it takes arrogance to run for such an office when you are so not qualified) he is just a man who got a little power and money and let it go to his head. And fell on his own sword. History is full of them. Your 15 minutes of fame are over Mr Cain. Go enjoy retirement with your wife ( if she’ll have you ) as you should have done in the first place.

    I done with this!!! Cain's wife already told him to GET OUT OF THE RACE if he wants to SAVE THEIR MARRIAGE – (if it is"savable").

    This so-called "build-up" Cain is staging is nothing more than a screen – a smoke screen so he can disappear behind it and go out with the LITTLE dignity he believes he has left. He, like Palin, will blame it on their family for the reason why they will bow out!!! Jeez!!

    Poor Hermie! He will be asking his supporters for a place to stay after Mrs. Cain kicks his butt!

    Cain has been a joke from the very beginning. Anyone who would remotely consider him as presindental material is as goofy as he is. The Republican party sure has been putting on an enteraining good show. What a bunch of misfits and losers.
