Religious Broadcaster Robertson: Cain Should Quit Race

Thursday, 01 Dec 2011 08:37 AM


VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — Religious broadcaster Pat Robertson says Herman Cain should end his GOP presidential campaign.

Women's allegations of sexual misconduct and a longtime affair are too much for Cain's candidacy to overcome, Robertson said on the "The 700 Club" on CBN News Wednesday. Robertson said Cain can't win the nomination, so "it's time to get out."

Suggesting that Cain's presidential aptitude already was suspect, Robertson said Cain was "good at making pizzas but is “in over his head" when it came to foreign policy.

The 81-year-old Robertson unsuccessfully sought the Republican presidential nomination in 1988.

On Monday, a Georgia woman said she and Cain had carried on a consensual sexual relationship, but he denies it. The former businessman said he's spoken to his wife only by phone since then.

Cain has maintained a busy campaign schedule this week. On Wednesday night, he spoke to reporters at his New Hampshire campaign headquarters.

Cain said he won't decide whether to continue the campaign until he talks to his wife in person about the allegations. He expects to do that Friday.
