Embattled Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain said on Friday he will make an announcement about the future of his candidacy on Saturday in Atlanta.

In remarks at a campaign stop in South Carolina, Cain gave no hint as to what his decision might be.

He is reassessing his candidacy in the wake of a claim by an Atlanta businesswoman that she had a 13-year affair with the former pizza magnate.
