Huntsman: Cain Scandals Hurting GOP

0 Shares
Herman Cain has denied that he had any sexual involvement with his latest accuser.

Republican Presidential primary candidate Jon Huntsman suggested in a recent interview that his sex scandal-ridden fellow candidate, Herman Cain, is hurting the entire Republican field and distracting voters from the real issues.

Speaking of the latest allegation against Cain involving a 13-year extramarital affair, Huntsman said it is time for the former CEO rethink his candidacy.

“Every time another accusation comes up, it diminishes our ability to stay focused on the issues that really do matter for the American people. And I think that’s a disservice to the voters,” Huntsman told The Boston Globe.

Cain has denied that he had any sexual involvement with the latest accuser. He insists he and the woman were involved in a “friendship relationship” and that he helped her financially.

“I have spoken directly to the American people and have been 100% honest with them. My plan is to continue to spread my vision on how I would renew America and keep her safe. I will not fight false claims as it is not what America needs or wants,” Cain said in a statement Monday.

Cain reportedly has decided to “reassess” his candidacy “over the next several days.” But despite some speculation he will drop out of the race, campaign manager Marc Bloc said only Cain’s wife and lack of support could make him give up, according to ABC News.
