Cain Suspends Campaign

After spending a week reviewing his campaign, Herman Cain has decided today that he will no longer be in the race for the president of the United States in 2012.

In a news conference held on Saturday, Dec. 3, he continues to hang on to his innocence. He says the allegations of sexual abuse are not true. “That spin hurts,” Cain said. “It hurts my wife, it hurts my family, it hurts me and it hurts the American people because you’re being denied solutions to our problems.”

He noted that even though his campaign is over, he would continue to work hard to remodel this country. “I have not given up on America,” Cain said. “We can put ‘united’ back into the United States of America.”

Running for president is a, “dirty game,” Cain said.  If I’m not the outsider to get there – the day will come that America will reject all the false accusations.”

Now that Cain is out of the race that leaves seven hopefuls left to battle for the position of president. Tonight at 8 p.m., Fox News will host a presidential forum with Michelle Bachman, Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Ron Paul and Rick Perry. Jon Huntsman is not yet confirmed to attend.
