Fifth place in Iowa apparently isn't deterring Rick Perry just yet, as he's now tweeting that he's moving on in his campaign to South Carolina. "And the next leg of the marathon is the Palmetto State...Here we come South Carolina!!!" writes @GovernorPerry
before posting a picture of a
- running-outfit-clad Perry in front of a body of water. Last night, in Iowa, Perry certainly did not sound like he was up for much of anything after his disappointing finish. "With the voters' decision tonight in Iowa, I decided to return to Texas, assess the results of tonight's caucus, determine whether there is a path forward for myself in this race," he said in his concession speech. And all sorts of Perry camp sources were telling reporters that this was the end for him. One Perry staffer in South Carolina told CNN on Tuesday night, "It looks like he is not coming this week. He has definitely canceled his plans." Perhaps Bachmann's decision to drop out
made Perry change his mind. Maybe Romney asked him to do him a favor
and stay in the race to siphon support from Santorum. We don't know. And we also aren't exactly sure what this has to do with the photo above.
