Herman Cain said today he would remain in the race, reports the New York Times. Campaigning in Ohio (slated to have its primary in June) today, Cain said, “They want you to believe that with enough character assignation on me, I will drop out! The American people have a different idea. The American people are going to raise some Cain in 2012.”
On Good Morning America today, Ginger White gave more details about the alleged affair:
White, 46, described their relationship as a “very casual affair.” She said she was single when it began and Cain took her on “several trips,” including to a Mike Tyson vs. Evander Holyfield fight in Las Vegas.
Over the past two and a half years Cain “consistently” gave White money, she said, but it was not “sex for cash.” She admitted to financial difficulties,including being sued for libel by a former business partner, but denied that she was ever evicted.
