Jon Huntsman is glad Herman Cain is "reassessing" whether to stay in the race, following the new allegations from a Georgia woman that he had a lengthy extramarital affair with her.
In an interview with the Boston Globe, Huntsman said, "Given the bandwidth that has been taken out of the discussion of any other issues pertinent to this campaign, a reconsideration might be in order."
Huntsman said he saw the news of the most recent allegations against Cain and called it a distraction.
“Just watching last night, everyone was glued to the latest bit of drama and I thought, ‘What about a (financial) downgrade that is being anticipated? What about Europe? What about so many other issues out there that we ought to be talking about and that people ought to understand where candidates come down on those issues?’” Huntsman said. “It’s all sort of dissipated in the latest campaign drama around the accusations.”
