Cain suspends presidency campaign

EMBATTLED Republican Herman Cain has suspended his campaign for the US presidency following allegations of an affair and several sexual harassment claims.

He was once considered a frontrunner for his party's nomination but the Georgia businessman's poll ratings have dived, with Republican primary voters deserting him - women in particular.

He met with donors before arriving at his Atlanta headquarters hand-in-hand with his wife, Gloria Cain.

"I am suspending my presidential campaign because of the continued distraction, the continued hurt caused on me and my family," he told supporters.
