Cain Train May Be Coming to a Halt

Herman Cain is making a big annoucement tomorrow, and sources close to him think he's calling it quits on his presidential run. While no final decision has been made, the former frontrunner's recent travails -- specifically allegations of a thirteen year affair -- seem to have worn his shine.

Multiple sources familiar with the discussions told POLITICO Friday that Herman Cain is “leaning toward suspending the campaign,” in the words of one, who stressed no decision has been made.

“He’ll probably get out, but nothing’s been decided,” another source said.

But Cain may still decide to fight, the source added. Either way, Cain has made clear he is not conceding the allegations against him are true, and also that he plans to keep fighting to clear himself somehow, although it’s not clear what form that would take.

What’s also become clear is that some of Cain’s advisers want him to keep going.

Cain’s campaign spokesman J.D. Gordon pushed back on the rumors that the candidate would likely leave the race, saying, “I don’t know where they are getting their information.”

Gordon referred back to Cain’s comments on Fox News on Thursday night that he’d make a decision by Monday and at a town hall on Friday, where he said he’d announce his future plans on Saturday.

“I don’t have anything to add from what Mr. Cain said in Rock Hill, S.C., and on the Sean Hannity program,” Gordon said.

Cain's surprising rise in the polls diminished significantly in recent days, and his financial support has taken a hit, too. Withdrawl from the race might be the best option at this point.

Newt Gingrich certainly has something to smile about should the Cain Train derail: it seems current "Not Mitt" favorite would pick up Cain's remaining supporters. You take this one indeed, Newt.
