Rick Perry Returns To Texas


At 11:58PM, when the results of the Iowa Republican Caucuses were clear, Texas Gov. Rick Perry began addressing his supporters at his West Des Moines campaign headquarters.

Following the reading of a letter from a man who had staunchly backed him, he dropped a bombshell:

"This wasn't my purpose in life, but our country is in trouble. It was my duty to serve my country one more time. With the voters’ decision, I’ve decided to return to Texas and determine if there is a path forward.  With a little reflection, I am going to decide the best path forward. There is a model to take this country forward and it is in the great state of Texas." 

UPDATE I:  January 4, 2012 @6:45AM—Perry, according to CNN, has scrapped his South Carolina plans.

“We have been told to hold until we hear from Austin," said a Perry source in South Carolina, where the candidate was preparing to launch an aggressive statewide bus tour on Wednesday. "It looks like he is not coming this week. He has definitely canceled his plans."

UPDATE II:  At 11:14AM on January 4th, Governor Perry tweeted, “And the next leg of the marathon is the Palmetto State…Here we come South Carolina!!!”  The tweet came just as presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann announced that she was ending her campaign.

The AP says Perry's national political director told campaign workers early Wednesday that the governor will review his finances and assess the political landscape in South Carolina and beyond.
