Herman Cain: Will He Stay In Or Will He Quit Announcement. Suspending His Campaign

Above The Post Update:
Cain just arrived on stage...with his wife.

Say he reassessed the impact the allegations (which he repeatedly denied) have had on his family and this was best for them. He wouldn't be able to raise enough funds.

He says he won't be "silenced and won't be going away".

Now he's launching some new website or something.

Says he'll be making an endorsement soon. Not sure who wants it at this point.

And that's one less "not-Romney" Mitt has to help split the rest of the vote.

Original Post:
He's done his reassessment, now we wait for the answer. It was supposed to be noon eastern but it's slipped.

In other campaign news: Gingrich v. Huntsman in a one on one debate, December 12th in New Hampshire.

Gingrich vs. Romney? Team Mitt said no thanks.

Meanwhile, Ron Paul joins Huntsman in declining Trump's stupid debate.

“The selection of a reality television personality to host a presidential debate that voters nationwide will be watching is beneath the office of the Presidency and flies in the face of that office’s history and dignity. Mr. Trump’s participation as moderator will distract from questions and answers concerning important issues such as the national economy, crushing federal government debt, the role of the federal government, foreign policy, and the like. To be sure, Mr. Trump’s participation will contribute to an unwanted circus-like atmosphere.

“Mr. Trump’s selection is also wildly inappropriate because of his record of toying with the serious decision of whether to compete for our nation’s highest office, a decision he appeared to make frivolously. The short-lived elevation of Mr. Trump’s stature as a candidate put him on the radar of many organizations and we recall that last spring he was invited to keynote the Republican Party of Iowa’s annual Lincoln Day Dinner, yet at the last minute he left RPI holding the bag by canceling. In turn, RPI canceled its biggest fundraising gala of the year and suffered embarrassment and in addition RPI was required to engage in refunding measures. Our candidate will not even consider participating in the late-December debate until Mr. Trump publicly apologizes to Iowa party leaders and rectifies in full the situation.

“Therefore our candidate Ron Paul, the champion of the Constitution, has advised he will not attend.”

If Ron Paul thinks you're a clownish buffoon, maybe it's time to stick to your day jobs. Anyone who agrees to this really needs to be disqualified from consideration. (Which apparently includes...Newt Gingrich)

I think this debate is going to come down to Gary Johnson, Buddy Roemer and Fred Karger. Or maybe it will just be Trump debating his favorite person...Donald Trump.
