After telling supporters at the Iowa Caucus last night that he was going home to Texas to "reassess" his campaign, Texas Governor Rick Perry is apparently going to stay in the race after all.

This morning, he tweeted the following message from his personal account to his 113,000 followers:

And the next leg of the marathon is the Palmetto State...Here we come South Carolina!!! http://t.co/ayZTVJAa(image) 55 minutes ago via Twitter for BlackBerry® · powered by @socialditto

The attached image is the lead image above, which appears to be Perry out for a jog. Perry's official campaign account, @TeamRickPerry also retweeted the tweet.

Perry seems to be referring to one of the next stops in the primary race. The South Carolina primary will be held on January 21st.

Perry had a disappointing showing in last night's Iowa Caucus, finishing in 5th place with only 10.3% of the vote. Mitt Romney squeaked out a victory over Rick Santorum, posting a winning margin of only 8 votes.
