Texas Gov. Rick Perry is staying in the presidential race despite a fifth-place finish in the Iowa caucuses.

He’s written on his official Twitter account that the “the next leg of the marathon is the Palmetto State. … Here we come South Carolina!!!”

He’s attached a photo of himself jogging near a lake, wearing a Texas A&M running shorts and showing a thumbs-up.

The South Carolina primary is Jan. 21. New Hampshire’s is next Tuesday.
