Texas Gov. Perry's poor Iowa showing leaves him reassessing campaign

Texas Gov. Rick Perry is reassessing whether to continue his presidential campaign after sustaining the first defeat in a 27-year political career Tuesday night. Rather than moving on to South Carolina today as scheduled, Perry told supporters at his headquarters hotel that he would return to Texas to assess the results of the caucuses and determine "whether there is a path forward for myself in this race."
