WEST CHESTER, Ohio (AP) -- Embattled presidential candidate Herman Cain is claiming a "groundswell of positive support" from backers even as allegations of a 13-year extra-marital affair raises questions about his campaign's viability.

A feisty Cain did not name is critics, but he accused them of attacking his character, reputation and name to try to bring him down.

But he added that he doesn't "believe that America is going to let that happen."

The Republican made the comments while in Ohio for a bus tour.

At his first stop in southwest Ohio, he gave a well-received speech to roughly 150 people in a hotel meeting room and gave no indication that he was considering abandoning his bid.
