Presidential candidate Herman Cain announced the supsension of his campaign Saturday.
In an even that was supposed to mark the grand opening of Cain's state headquarters in Georgia, Cain surprised supporters with his announcement.
"I'm suspending my campaign," Cain publicly announced, "Because of the continued distractions and continued hurt caused on me and my family."
Peter Alexander's report for MSNBC's Today Show highlights footage from the event and also includes analysis from David Gregory.
"His political support was hollowing out," Gregory said. "So yes, the personal became the political."
