Hour 1

Herman Cain, once a frontrunner in the Republican presidential primary, said this week that he is “reassessing” his presidential campaign after facing accusations that he had a 13-year long extramarital affair. Meanwhile Gingrich, who was at the bottom of the pack early on in the GOP primary run, has continued to maintain his lead over Romney in the polls. We’ll talk about the most recent shifts in the GOP race with KEVIN FERRIS, columnist and editor for the Philadelphia Inquirer, and SAM STEIN, political reporter for the Huffington Post. We’ll also discuss Obama’s Pennsylvania visit and the challenges he faces in the keystone state with CHRIS BORICK, Director of the Muhlenberg College Institute of Public Opinion.
