Cain Suspends Campaign But Vows to Keep Fighting

An "unapologetic and defiant" Herman Cain suspended his presidential campaign, pledging that he "would not go away," the New York Times reports.

Instead, Mr. Cain announced what he called a "Plan B," continued advocacy of his tax and foreign policy plans.

"Mr. Cain, with his wife at his side, adamantly professed Saturday that the accusations of sexual harassment and of a long-term affair that have swamped his campaign were not true. The circus-like atmosphere surrounding Saturday's announcement -- complete with numerous postponements, barbecue, a blues band and supporters in colonial-era dress -- was in keeping with the campaign's irreverence and disarray since its inception: Mr. Cain, a self-styled rebel, announced his intention to run earlier this year at a rally, also in Atlanta, with the nonsensical phrase, 'Aw, shucky ducky!'"
