After seeing his campaign end as quickly as it fired up, Herman Cain is expected to endorse Newt Gingrich for the Republican nomination for President of the United States. A local Fox station in Atlanta is citing inside sources as saying that Cain will endorse Gingrich today.
Gingrich spokesman R.C. Hammond said that he doesn’t expect Cain to make the endorsement today, stating that he would be surprised to see Cain endorse anyone this quickly. Cain’s backing would make Gingrich a clear frontrunner in the Republican chase for the White House. A recent poll shows Gingrich ahead of the competition in Iowa, harnessing 26 percent of the vote. Mitt Romney is in second with 18 percent and Ron Paul is third with 17 percent.
Cain’s decline was a surprise to his supporters, most of it driven by Ginger White, a woman who claims she had an affair with Cain over the last 13 years. Cain continues to deny that he had any affair with White, but saw his support decline as a result of the allegations. He then suspended his campaign over the weekend.
