Ginger White dished up more details of her alleged affair with Herman Cain today on Good Morning America, calling their 13- or 14-year relationship an "on-and-off," "very casual affair." She divulged that Cain "flew me on several trips," including to a Mike Tyson-Evander Holyfield fight in Las Vegas, and also has given her "gifts and money for the last two and a half years consistently."

But he asked for nothing in return, White said, adding, "this was not sex for cash." Cain, for his part, has admitted to giving White financial assistance, but told supporters he was just helping "a friend in need." White, who also showed GMA text message records that appear to show communication between her and Cain as recently as this month, added that she does not believe Cain would make a good president. Though he is reportedly "reassessing" whether to stay in the race, Cain's campaign manager tells ABC News he is not dropping out. Click to see who will benefit if he does.
