Block on Cain: ‘No Way He’s Dropping Out’

by Katrina Trinko

From ABC News:

Although Herman Cain told his senior staff this morning that he was “reassessing” his campaign’s livelihood in light of an accusation by an Atlanta woman of a 13-year extra-marital affair, Cain’s campaign manager, Mark Block, said in an interview tonight that there is “no way he’s dropping out.”

Block said the term “reassessment” was meant to imply a “strategic reassessment” and “not a reassessment of withdrawing” from the race.

Cain was raising a lot of money in recent weeks, buoyed both by his surge in the polls and supporters who wanted to demonstrate they felt the sexual harassment allegations were false and smears against Cain. It’s unlikely financial necessity at least will force him to drop out right away, even if the fundraising dries up.
