Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain says that he needs to assess whether accusations that he had a 13-year extramarital affair will create too much of a cloud in the minds of potential supporters.
Cain made the remarks Tuesday in a conference call with campaign workers after Ginger White accused him of having a long-running affair in a TV interview Monday night.
The National Review said it was on the conference call and transcribed Cain’s remarks. Cain denied the affair. But he said the campaign needs to assess “whether or not this is going to create too much of a cloud” in the minds of supporters going forward.
Cain said the allegations have taken a toll on his wife and family.
