ANDERSON, S.C. (AP) - Rick Perry is back in South Carolina this week for several events in the Upstate, days after his campaign stopped paying its staff.

On Thursday, the former Texas governor is taking part in a town hall meeting with the Anderson County Republican Party.

The Republican is touring Anderson’s Haven of Rest Ministries on Friday before a meet and greet at The Beacon restaurant in Spartanburg.

Earlier this week, Perry’s campaign announced it had stopped paying its staff.

But Perry has well-funded super PACs that say they’re ready to step in and keep his message afloat at least through the Feb. 1 caucuses in Iowa, where Perry has spent more time than any other White House hopeful.
