(COLUMBIA, S.C.) -- Texas Gov. Rick Perry's wife spoke on Thursday at North Greenville University in South Carolina, saying she convinced him to run for president.
Anita Perry said God spoke to her about her husband running, but it took the governor some time to agree with her. Gov. Perry has dropped in polls, and his wife explained the drop by saying his campaign has been affected because of his faith and because Gov. Perry is the only true conservative.
Gov. Perry's campaign rolls on with a stop in Pennsylvania on Friday.
