HILLSDALE, Mich.—Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain is sticking to his topic -- defense spending -- in his first public speech since an Atlanta businesswoman alleged that they had a 13-year extramarital affair.

Cain addressed an audience at Hillsdale College in Michigan on Tuesday night, just a day after Ginger White detailed their affair in an interview with an Atlanta TV station.

Cain has flatly denied an affair with White, although he acknowledged being a friend of White's and helping her financially. He told his campaign staff earlier Tuesday that he is assessing whether her allegation will create too much of a cloud for his campaign to continue.

In his Hillsdale College speech, Cain called for investment in the military instead of what he called the current policy of "cut, cut, cut."
