It shows the Texas governor will be in New Hampshire for Saturday night's debate and Sunday morning's debate but he's scheduled to be South Carolina Sunday afternoon, where he'll stay through New Hampshire's Tuesday primary.

Polls in New Hampshire show MItt Romney with a double-digit lead. The latest WMUR/UNH poll, out Friday, showed Perry with a mere 1 percent in the first-in-the-nation primary state.

Perry is reassuming his campaign schedule after returning to Texas to reassess his candidacy in the wake of his fifth place finish in the Iowa caucuses.

He had placed an emphasis on South Carolina from the start, announcing his presidential campaign in that state. He was originally scheduled to go to South Carolina after Iowa.
