Skip to comments.BREAKING!! Aide: Herman Cain will stay in the race
Posted on 11/29/2011 3:06:48 PM PST by Jim Robinson
After reports surfaced Tuesday morning that pizza magnate Herman Cain is reassessing his 2012 Republican presidential nomination bid, POLITICO obtained a statement from a Cain campaign spokesman regarding his candidates consideration of dropping out of the race.
Yes, the campaign spokesman said Tuesday when asked whether Cain would definitely remain in the race.
The clarification comes after the National Review Online released statements that Cain made in a conference call with campaign aides Tuesday morning. During the call, Cain made the following statements, We have to do an assessment as to whether or not this is going to create too much of a cloud, in some peoples minds, as to whether or not they would be able to support us going forth, Cain said.

His fundraising has most likely all but dried up. His campaign will starve for a lack of $$$
Now if we could just get hairboy and his other cult friend to drop out.
I hope he sticks around Jim. Im sticking with him if he does...
Methinks a conservative black has strayed too far from the plantation ! >PS
I will support him.
Who is hairboy?
Yessss!! (best Marv Albert voice)
Screw these gold diggers!!! GO CAIN!!!
Good. Bachmann is my favorite but I will vote for Cain in the Michigan primary because he’s the only one who can beat Mittens here.
Herman Cain is speaking at Hillsdale college tonight. Seems that he has followed Sarah Palin’s and Ronald Reagan’s lead and is treating us like real people. Mitt brushed us aside without a word on his way to the cash register.
Thank-you Mr. Cain! Ignore the troublemakers PLEASE!
Good news! Unlike those who seem to delight in nay-saying conservative presidential candidates and declaring them finished, I remain on the ‘Cain Train’ and believe that he’ll surmount these gutter attacks and even the disparagement he sometimes receives on conservative political websites such as FR.
Yes!!! The Iowa Campaign Head for Cain says he lost a few supporters in Iowa, but gained many more today. That is great news. I am so glad that it looks like he is staying in the race. Cain/Bachmann 2012!!!!
Shows all the right stuff to our nations leader.
Defying his attackers like this is what makes leaders of other nations look at him with respect instead of snickers and guffaws Obama gets.
I wasn't planning on donating to him until he was the nominee, but I will definitely send him something if he stays in the race. I'll bet I'm not alone.
And more good news - check out the poll on the right side, scroll about halfway down on this web page:
From this website, which also has an article about Cain not dropping out, is this poll:
“Will Obama win re-election?”
Yes. 37.14% (40,051 votes)
No. 54.92% (59,228 votes)
Not sure. 7.94% (8,564 votes)
Total Votes: 107,843
I’m really happy with this development. Go, Mr. Cain, go!!
hairboy = Romney
his cult (Mormon) friend = Huntsman
Just waiting for the usual suspects to descend in 3, 2, 1...
Can he prove a negative?
If he can prove that someone is putting these women up to this, he wins big ...if he cant prove it ....the campaign slowly dies.
A lot of people have already moved on to Newt. With Cain staying in, it may only help Romney by splitting the conservative vote.
Even if Herman Cain may not gain back the front-runner position, he will help keep the others honest in this race.
Also, this will test the proposition, whether an American of African origin is to be considered on merit alone, or if the snipers from the Chicago Thug Machine will come out enough into the open to make themselves targets.
Because just about all the fire directed at Cain is coming from one source, David Axelrod, who is part of the crew that has tame house “folks” in their stable, and would very much like to keep that stereotype going.
Are you going to the speech? If so, please post a first hand account!
Thank God and pass the ammo!
“I hope he sticks around Jim. Im sticking with him if he does...”
I don’t think “sticking around” will do it for him...he needs to play a little smash mouth politics here... SOMEBODY has a blue dress...make her come up with dates, receipts, checks, something. Then it’s a win. “Sticking it out” won’t even get him a draw. I’m not saying he has to beat the snot out of her...but put her in a corner and make her put up or retract. The game is definitely on and there can be no draw.
Stay in the race, Cain. Even if ken5050 doesn’t like it. LOL!
Just kidding, ken.
Fight on, Cain!
How sad since Newt is almost identical to Romney.
Thank you, I appreciate this news.
I have to say, watching what’s been going on with Herman is ripping me up on the inside.
This is just disgusting.
God be with you and your family, Mr. cain.
They have? And you know this...how?
No, I’m an hour away and the weather is nasty. If I had known about it before last night I would have made plans to go.
God bless you, Jim. You are always in my prayers.
Good. I am still on the Cain Train. He has my vote.

It’s a beautiful day for the race
Mittens is the favorite today
Santorum is in there
Newt is 3 to 1
Palin has been scratched
And at 20 to 1 ... Huntsman
Now the horses are approaching the starting gate
And there they go!!
And it’s Mittens going to the front
Perry is second on the rail
Bachmann is third by a length
And ... Huntsman
Around the first turn
Mittens is still in front
Cain is second by a head
Cain by a head
Perry is third
And ... Huntsman
Into the back stretch
Cain is now leading the pack
Mittens is second, very close
Newt is coming up through the bunch
Newt coming up through the bunch
And ... Huntsman
At the half
Mittens still out in front
Newt is second with plenty of room
Bachmann is passing Santorum
Perry is fourth
And in last place by 10 lengths
I believe it is, yes it is ...
Around the turn heading for home
It’s Mittens and Newt
And Perry in the stretch
Ron Paul is third
And Bachmann nagging in the rear
Oh oh oh
And now they come down to the wire
And it’s number one
And now number two
And it’s very close
There’ll need to be a photo finish
Or an oil painting
And now Louis leads with a left
And Louis is in there slugging
And it’s a battle
And now they’re tearing hair
There’s hair all over the ring
There’s hair all over the place
I don’t know whose hair it is, ah ah
And there goes the winner ...
Michele made a Mistake by letting that Putz Ed Rollins into her campaign, I hope She can still pull it out, but that nimrod only made it much harder.
Other than that Herman Cain is the only other Candidate that gives me even the slightest amount of Hope that he will check the Whig Leadership and the Culture of Corruption that has gripped Washington. And I agree 100% about what you said about Sarah and Ronald Reagan, they look(ed) on America as a Nation of Citizens, not a Nation of Serfs.
I know a lot of people and they haven’t moved to Newt. Maybe you’re lot of people are different than my lot of people. That’s a whole lot of people.
Just plain common sense, Cain fought off stage four cancer, makes no sense he would collapse under a flurry of false accusers.
Ah yes, forgot about the Winter Storm Warning. We’re being spared over here on the Lake Michigan shore!
The one to have gained most from him dropping out is Gingrich and the Democrats.
BTW, I just saw on "Judge Judy" a guy from Georgia who looked just like Obama.
Nice, thanks for the great news!
If anything, Newt is drawing Rommey people.
Good. We need someone with guts, because even if he gets elected, he’ll still have his work cut out for him for the next 8 years, fighting against the politicos in both parties.
These media attacks just make my like him more, frankly. They are meaningless, unless we let the media run over us.
And he is better on foreign policy than most of the others. One of the few Republicans who understands that Libya was a mistake. That famous pause was because he was being recorded giving an interview to several newspaper reporters, and was suddenly thrown a confusing and completely off-topic question.
I still have some doubts. I wish he hadn’t settled on that damned 9-9-9 business, for instance. But most of the remaining alternatives are simply out of the question.
Either we need Cain to rise to the challenge, or we need the return of Sarah Palin to fill the yawning vacuum. I don’t see any other choices now, and 2012 is probably the last chance our country will get.
