Herman Cain Endorsement: Newt Gingrich To Reportedly Receive Cain's Support, Campaign Denies Announcement

Posted: Updated:

Conflicting reports surfaced Sunday evening regarding a possible endorsement by embattled GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain, in favor of current front-runner Newt Gingrich.

Fox 5 Atlanta tweeted Sunday evening that Cain was set to endorse Gingrich on Monday for the GOP nomination. Minutes later, National Journal's Lindsey Boerma had word from the Cain campaign that "there's nothing to report he'll endorse someone tomorrow."

ABC's Michael Falcone tweeted a comment from Cain Chief of Staff Mark Block, who added "I have no knowledge that Cain is endorsing anyone anytime soon." Falcone procured a comment from another top Cain aide on the Fox Atlanta report, saying "Not true. I am not sure where they heard that."

Cain announced on Saturday afternoon that he was suspending his presidential run, in light of being accused of having an extramarital affair and facing a slew of sexual harassment charges. Cain has actively denied any wrongdoing.

Politico adds that Gingrich has added media availability to his schedule, suggesting that the event could be held in New York.
