Gloria Cain Fox News Appearance: Herman Cain's Wife Cancels Interview

As GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain wades his way through a flurry of sexual harassment allegations, his wife has apparently decided that now is not the time to speak on the issue.

The New York Times reports that Gloria Cain has canceled a Friday evening interview with Fox News. She was scheduled to appear on "On the Record with Greta Van Susteren."

Cain hinted a few days ago that his wife would eventually make a media appearance. "You will meet my wife publicly in an exclusive interview that we are currently planning and anticipating, but you won't see my family out on the campaign trail on a day-to-day basis," Cain told Fox News.

Cain's week began on a high note, with news that he was tied with Mitt Romney for the lead in a key Iowa poll. The celebration was short-lived, as Politico released a report Sunday evening accusing the GOP hopeful of sexually harassing two women during his tenure at the National Restaurant Association (NRA).

Adding to Cain's troubles, a third accuser came forward on Wednesday alleging inappropriate conduct on Cain's part.

Despite the controversy, Gloria Cain has stayed by her husband's side. Herman Cain told the AP that she was "still 200 percent supportive of me in this whole race, 200 percent supportive of me as her husband, because I haven't done anything."
