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.

    I agree with you completely "hmmm". I couldn't have said it better. How easy we forget about Clinton and once dumbocraptic presidential hopeful, John Edwards. You're right, these women are just now coming forward with not one shred of proof of these supposed accusations against Cain. Disgusting and laughable.

    I find it amusing that Liberal Women worship Bill Clinton and condemn the opposing party when the same stuff happens. This latest woman has a history of false accusations of this kind and is in a financial mess at the moment. So far NONE of these women have been credible with their accusations against Cain. This is pure desperation by Obama and the msm to keep the usurper in power. You liberal women keep loving Bill Clinton who IS a proven cheater and womanizer and keep showing your hypocrite ways. At least Gingrich when he held office stepped down unlike Clinton who continued to cook the books(no balanced budget ever under Clinton)and disgrace the Oval office with his presence.

    But your hooha keeps biting you in the tushy! A president who's snickerdoodle gets him into trouble is a serious liability. We need Joe Perfect right now, more than ever, and you Sir are no Joe Perfect.

    GOP frontrunners Cain and Gingrich truly represent the "values" voting block perfectly. Total hypocrites they, the candidates, and their voting block truly are!

    Well, of course these "Family Values" hypocrites couldn't care less about a man cheating on his wife.
