Presidential candidate Herman Cain just announced via live video feed that he will not be continuing his campaign in the wake of accusations that he conducted a 13-year extramarital affair.

Today's barbeque-cooking and country music-playing event was initially scheduled to be the ribbon-cutting for Cain's national headquarters, but between recent allegations of multiple infidelities and comments from Cain that he would be "reassessing" his political plans, there has been a lot of speculation that he would be dropping out of the race. Cain says:

"As of today, with a lot of prayer and soul searching, I am suspending my presidential campaign. I am suspending my presidential campaign because of the continued distraction, the continued hurt . . . on me, on my family, not because we are not fighters, not because I am not a fighter."

No word yet on what will become of ‘Women For Herman Cain'.
