Among many speculations, Presidential contender, Herman Cain is no more! “As of today, with a lot of prayer and soul searching, I am suspending my presidential campaign,” Cain said outside his campaign headquarters Saturday in Atlanta. Cain announced that he was suspending his campaign in light of the many false allegations, which he claims have brought hurt to both he and his family. Cain denied once again the truthfulness of the allegations to the crowd, while wife, Gloria, nodded and applauded.
But Cain is not ending his political career. The former candidate for president offered a Plan B He wants to continue his 9-9-9 plan; to push for a foreign policy of peace through strength and clarity; and an energy independence plan for America. Cain stressed that he will be making an endorsement in the near future and it will not “be the current occupant in the White House.” Cain concluded by saying that “he desires to move the shining city on the hill up to the top of the hill where it belongs.”
This marked the end of Cain’s meteoric rise in the national scene. Many will be waiting for a Cain endorsement in the days or weeks ahead. In the absence of Herman Cain, the Republican Party is left with three main contenders: Former Governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney; Former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich; and Texas Congressman, Ron Paul.
