Where would you rather spend the night - in Manchester, N.H., where it's a little above freezing or place like Columbia when temperatures go into the 60s?

Well, Rick Perry will spend New Hampshire primary night on Tuesday in South Carolina, the New Hampshire Union Leader reports:

"Not only won't he campaign in the state -- except for apperances in the two weekend debates -- his campaign says he intends to spend primary night in South Carolina, not New Hampshire.

Ironically, the latest polling from South Carolina has Perry in fifth place with the support of 5 percent of likely South Carolina GOP primary votes. That's about the same as he has been faring in New Hampshire."

Say what you will, but most folks would prefer to not have to pack parkas.

Plus, it's a better climate for Perry to go jogging.
