Perry Compares Presidential Bid to Alamo

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) _ Texas Gov. Rick Perry is telling South Carolina crowds that his decision to stay in the White House race is like the last stand at the Alamo.

Perry told a crowd of nearly 300 at a packed burger joint that he’s not quitting on America or the campaign. He compared himself to the South Carolinians who rode to the Alamo to fight for Texas’ freedom even though they knew the fight would be lost.

Perry briefly re-evaluated his campaign after a disappointing loss in the Iowa caucuses last week and canceled events in South Carolina. But within a day he was putting up an ambitious schedule for the first-in-the-South primary.

Perry took swipes at Mitt Romney and the rest of the field as Washington insiders.
