Perry Returning To Texas To Consider Next Step

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - The Iowa caucuses may have claimed a political casualty.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who finished fifth, says he's returning to Texas for "prayer and reflection" and will determine "whether there is a path forward" for his White House bid.

In an emotional address to supporters in West Des Moines, Perry thanked his backers but says he needs to think about whether there is a strategy for restarting his campaign in South Carolina.

Earlier, his advisers tried to suggest that the first primary in the South would allow Perry to regain ground.

Perry generated a lot of buzz when he jumped into the race in August, but immediately started to nosedive. Campaign events in South Carolina, where Perry launched his bid, have been put on
hold.
