Just days after allegations of an affair surfaced, GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain was campaigning in Ohio on Wednesday. At a stop in the Republican stronghold of West Chester, just north of Cincinnati, Cain received a warm welcome. His supporters stood and applauded as he entered the room.
If Cain is contemplating dropping out of the race, he gave no signs of it. He outlined how his administration would deal with the country’s problems and took a defiant tone when talking about the accusations against him:
“As you know, I have already been attacked, not because I have bad ideas, because the ideas are solid. They’re attacking my character, my reputation and my name in order to bring me down.”
Cain was reported to be re-assessing his campaign after an Atlanta woman said she’d had a 13-year extramarital affair with him. Cain has also faced sexual harassment allegations from several women, all of which he has denied.
Cain also spoke to a crowd of 100 at the Dayton Marriot immediately following the stop in West Chester. The Dayton Daily News Reports Cain said he is “reassessing” and “reevaluating” his campaign, but made it clear he is still in the race.
