GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain will make a "major announcement" Saturday at noon (ET) in his home state of Georgia, according to a tweet by NBC news. The AP reports the announcement is about the future of his candidacy.
During an interview with the publisher and the staff of New Hampshire's only statewide newspaper, the Union Leader, Cain said he was heading home to Georgia to speak to his wife today about allegations by Ginger White of a 13-year extramarital affair.
Cain told the Union Leader that if his wife tells him to quit the race then he will.
Earlier this week, Cain, the author of the 9-9-9 tax plan, said he was "reassessing" his candidacy. Four women have also accused Cain of sexual harassment.
Cain's interview with the Union Leader was the second attempt. He canceled an interview, which was scheduled before the latest allegation, with the newspaper last month after they refused to shorten the interview from 60 minutes to 20, and after Cain also refused to allow C-SPAN's cameras to film the question and answer session.
The Union Leader interviews each of the Republican presidential candidates seeking an endorsement, but Cain missed that opportunity - the paper endorsed Newt Gingrich last week.
At the end of the interview, Cain said, "you guys were very civilized."
