COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Herman Cain is preparing for one last campaign stop before he meets face-to-face with his wife to discuss allegations of a 13-year affair.

Cain on Friday planned a rally in Rock Hill, S.C., and then was ready to head home to Atlanta to meet with his wife for the first time since a Georgia businesswoman claimed she had an extramarital relationship with Cain. The former pizza executive in recent days has said he didn't tell his wife, Gloria, that he was providing the woman with money.

Cain says he is "a softy" who felt sorry for a friend and has denied any sexual relationship with her.

Even so, he is set to reassess his White House bid and expects to make a decision before Monday.
