Perry: South Carolina is not ‘our Alamo’
Rick Perry pushed back Tuesday on reports that South Carolina will be his campaign’s last stand in the race for the Republican presidential nomination.
“I’m not gonna play the game of ‘what ifs’ and ‘what have yous.’ Our intention is to win,” Perry told reporters at a campaign stop in South Carolina, according to multiple reports. “This isn’t our Alamo, this is our San Jacinto.”
While the Texas defenders were mostly killed by Mexican troops during the battle of the Alamo, the battle of San Jacinto won the Texas Revolution with few Texas losses in 1836.
Perry re-launched his campaign in South Carolina despite reports that he might drop out of the presidential race following a disappointing fifth place finish last week with 10 percent of the vote in Iowa.
