Perry Responds to Iowa Results 1/3/12

Despite a projected fifth place finish in Iowa, Texas Gov. Rick Perry remained positive on Tuesday night, signaling that his campaign will continue on to South Carolina, regardless of the caucus results.

"Everything is fine. I tell you, it's been an exciting evening for us," Perry told Fox News. "Everybody is upbeat where we are. ... You know, it's still early in the evening. … My plan is go to South Carolina and continue on."

 

Perry continued to emphasize his conservative credentials, despite poor numbers among voters who identified themselves as conservative, saying that his "conservative record will hold up against anyone on that stage." Perry said he also would not apologize for his fiscal and social conservatism. "I think that's what America is looking for is a job creator, someone who has the fiscal conservatism and, you know, a great believer in the Constitution and the Tenth Amendment and that is what we're about and what we'll continue to be about."
