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.

    First of all this is the worst speeh I have EVER heard. The speeh is not connected and does not make any sense. Pokemon? Seriously?

    Having said that – Cain knows there is nothing else he can do at this point but quit. In the next few weeks receipts, telephone records and FACTS are going to become public. As for Mrs. Cain she is NOT a very good actor. I saw the hurt in her eyes and the made up smile she was/is trying to portray. I for one am NOT buying it but I believe marriage is between two people so it is THEIR business.

    Hermain Cain can only blame himself for his failure to his supporters and his family and to his supporters I say good luck with Plan B.

    Thank you Mr Cain for respecting the poor woman who has stood by your side all this years and dropping out. Secondly your PLAN B should have been seeking marriage counseling not to launch a lobbying organization to push your 99.9% plan wait 9.9.9.. Anyway thank you for the show and you can now join trump in starting Godfather Apprentice. Good luck to you and your family we will be praying for you NOT VOTING for you!!
