(CNN) – Texas Gov. Rick Perry suggested Wednesday that he plans to continue his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination despite his fifth-place finish in the Iowa caucuses - and despite saying earlier that he would reassess his candidacy.
"And the next leg of the marathon is the Palmetto State...Here we come South Carolina!!!" Perry said on Twitter on Wednesday morning. Republican voters in South Carolina go to the polls on January 21. The New Hampshire primary happens on Tuesday.
Perry included a photo of himself in running gear with his tweet.
