Rick Perry pleads for a second chance in South Carolina

“After rejection in Iowa and surrender in New Hampshire, Republican Rick Perry has pinned his fading presidential hopes on a long-shot resurrection in deeply conservative South Carolina,” Reuters reports.

Said Perry: “Give me a second look. Look at my record.”

“But a comeback will be hard in South Carolina, which has picked the winner of the Republican presidential nomination each year since the primary began in 1980. Polls show Perry, who once led the state by more than 20 points, in a distant fifth after a series of disastrous debate performances.”
