GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain says he is "suspending" his presidential campaign. He made the announcement with his wife standing behind him at his headquarters in Atlanta, GA.
After allegations of a 13-year extramarital affair and numerous allegations of sexual assault, Cain said it has been difficult to raise the funds necessary to continue to vie for the Republican nomination.
“As false accusations continue, they have sidetracked my ability to present solutions to the American people,” Cain said.
The former pizza executive propelled to the top tier of the Republican presidential race over the last several months.
“I am at peace with my God. I am at peace with my wife and she is at peace with me," he said.
Cain said he is launching Cainsolutions.com to continue the discussion on his 9-9-9 tax plan, energy independence and foreign policy. He also said he will endorse another candidate soon.
