Despite poor showings in Iowa and New Hampshire, Gov. Rick Perry's presidential campaign is pressing on. Today, it released a 60-second web ad emphasizing Perry's never-give-up attitude.
"I have never quit a day in my life," Perry says in the ad. "I have never quit in the face of adversity, and I'm not just about to quit on the future of America. I am going to stay in this race and stay in this fight because our children and this country are worth the fight."
