Since Herman Cain suspended his presidential campaign due to a slew of sexual assault and extramarital affair accusations, the rumors have been circulating about whom the former GOP candidate will endorse.

The latest rumor is that Cain will announce an endorsement for current front-runner Newt Gingrich.

Cain’s departure from the race has shaped it more clearly into a match-up between Gingrich and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney.

According to Reuters, Gingrich seemed to be the more logical choice for a Cain endorsement because his campaign appealed to the same conservative wing of the Republican party as Cain’s.

Fox 5 Atlanta tweeted Sunday night that Cain was set to endorse Gingrich on Monday for the GOP nomination. Minutes later, National Journal’s Lindsey Boerma said there was word from the Cain campaign that “there’s nothing to report he’ll endorse someone tomorrow.”

Reuters reports that R.C. Hammond, a spokesman for Gingrich, said there were no plans for Cain to endorse the former Speaker of the House of Representatives on Monday, despite many media reports.
