Herman Cain is expected to arrive at the American Enterprise Institute at 9 a.m., representatives of the think tank said Monday morning.
A swarm of media is waiting for him, following Sunday's late-night Politico report that he harassed two women when he headed the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s.
A seat with Cain's name on it is reserved at the front of the room at AEI. Fifteen television cameras are pointed in that direction.
Seats are also reserved for his top advisors: Linda Hansen, Nathan Naidu, Mark Block and J.D. Gordon.
Overheard: "Do not let Block be Block. Do not let him out of the back room." It was a reference to the explanation the campaign offered for a puzzling Internet ad in which Block, Cain's chief of staff's, is smoking.
It's unclear if Block will attend the AEI event since he's expected to be interviewed by MSNBC's Chuck Todd on Monday morning.
Cain is also scheduled to address the National Press Club on Monday.
