Perry arrives to excited crowd in New Hampshire

“We’ve got a great respect for the first in the nation primary you all have here,” he said, adding that he “flew immediately” into New Hampshire from South Carolina and that he feels “right at home amongst people whose motto is ‘Live Free or Die.’”

“You don’t need a teleprompter to use it,” he said.

And in what could be interpreted as a veiled swipe at Romney, who’s downplaying Iowa, Perry said, “I intend to compete for every vote in every state. This isn’t just a strategy to work in a few places.”
