Reflecting upon the last week, Herman Cain remained optimistic about his campaign.
“It was a very challenging week,” Cain said in an interview that aired tonight on Fox News’ Geraldo at Large. “But what I’m proudest of is that first, we didn’t cancel one engagement. I didn’t cancel not one speech and not one interview. Because I refused to get thrown off message and I refuse to overreact to something that we knew or we know that eventually’s gonna be shown that is really not factually driven.”
Cain conceded that the initial response from him and his campaign had been a “bumpy start,” but noted that the campaign also had its most successful fundraising week.
“Far as we’re concerned, these allegations aren’t going anywhere,” he said. “I mean people might make up some more stuff. We are in it to win it.”
“The American people are sick of government politics,” Cain added.
