Rick Perry Tells S.C. Voters ‘I Don’t Give Up’

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (ABC News) — Five days after he expressed hesitancy about continuing in the presidential race, Texas Governor Rick Perry made his awaited return to South Carolina, sending a message to voters in the state — he’s not a quitter.

“I’ve never quit a day in my life. I have never quit in the face of adversity, and I’m not just about to quit on the future of America. I am going to stay in this race and stay in this fight because our children in this country are worth the fight,” Perry told a crowd of 125 South Carolinians at the Beacon Drive-In.

Perry rerouted his campaign to Austin, Texas, Wednesday, cancelling 10 events in South Carolina, after expressing a desire to reassess his place in the presidential race, but quickly made up his mind and decided to press on.
