MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Republican presidential contender Herman Cain says he hasn't yet faced his wife and family to discuss a new accusation of sexual misconduct.

On Monday, a Georgia woman accused Cain of a consensual sexual relationship that spanned more than a decade. The former businessman says he's only spoken to his wife by phone since then.

Cain has maintained a busy campaign schedule this week. On Wednesday night he spoke to reporters at his New Hampshire campaign headquarters.

Cain says he won't decide whether to continue the campaign until he sees his wife in person. He expects to do that Friday.
