WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican presidential contender Herman Cain told his staff on Tuesday he was reassessing the future of his campaign after a woman accused him of having a 13-year affair, a senior adviser said.

Cain, a former pizza executive who has already been hit by allegations of sexual harassment, has denied he had an affair with the woman. He has nosedived in polls in recent weeks after he was hit by harassment allegations.
