The Dallas Morning News is reporting 600 Texans are packing up to head to Iowa this month in a last-ditch effort to secure a caucus win for Gov. Perry.

Perry is struggling in the polls there. He’s been in the single digits in several recent samplings.

Our Capital Tonight commentator Ted Delisi will be among the Republicans making the trip. He’s working as National Field Director for the Perry campaign. We’re hoping Ted will be able to bring us live reports, while he is in Des Moines.

In the DMN article, Abbott says don’t count Perry out. He’s quoted saying he plans to talk to caucuses about what Perry has "achieved in Texas and why he’s the right person."
