ATLANTA (AP) - Herman Cain says he's suspending his presidential campaign following a string of sexual harassment allegations and a claim of an extramarital affair.

The Georgia businessman says the media coverage has hurt his family. Speaking to supporters in Atlanta he vowed he would "not be silenced" and would continue to promote his policy positions and eventually endorse another candidate for the Republican nomination.
