BLITZER’S BLOG: Romney and Gingrich take gloves off

By Wolf Blitzer, CNN

(CNN) - It looks like the gloves are beginning to come off between Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich. The two Republican presidential front-runners are starting to go after each other after trying to stay above the fray over the past many weeks and months.

This should not be surprising since they are in a fierce battle for the party’s nomination and the clock is ticking. Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Nevada and Florida are coming up quickly.

Cain 'reassessing' 2012 campaign

(CNN) – Herman Cain told his staff Tuesday he is "reassessing" the viability of his campaign in the wake of a Georgia woman's allegations that she had a long extramarital affair with the Georgia businessman. One top campaign source tells CNN he expects a decision "within a few days" - based on whether fund-raising dries up.

Cain told CNN's Wolf Blitzer on "The Situation Room" Monday that her assertion was coming and would be false.

Do you think Herman Cain should drop out of the presidential race?
