Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain suspended his campaign following allegations of sexual misconduct.

Cain, 65, announced Saturday that he would halt his drive toward the presidency, one month before the Iowa caucuses. He said he would revert to Plan B, a grass-roots effort to influence government.

In August, Cain visited Israel in an attempt to brush up his pro-Israel bona fides. He visited Christian holy sites as well as the Western Wall, and laid a wreath at Yad Vashem. Cain also rejected calls to reduce U.S. aid to Israel.

The former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza has never held elected office.
