ATLANTA - Herman Cain is acknowledging that the latest allegation he's facing -- from a woman who says they had a 13-year affair -- has created a "firestorm." And he's telling advisers that he is assessing whether it's cast "too much of a cloud" for his Republican presidential candidacy to go forward.

In a conference call today, according to the National Review, Cain says he'll continue with his schedule for the next several days -- and that if he changes his plans, "you all will be the first to know."

Cain has denied the affair, as well as several accusations of inappropriate sexual behavior that have dogged his candidacy over the past month. Throughout it all, he has repeatedly vowed to stay in the race.

When asked this morning if Cain is definitely continuing his campaign, a spokesman said, "Yes."

And after the conference call, Cain's attorney said, "Any report that Mr. Cain has decided to withdraw his candidacy is inaccurate."
