ANDERSON, S.C. (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry is taking it to rival Mitt Romney for saying he feared getting a pink slip during his executive career.

Perry says he doesn't doubt that Romney worried about pink slips but that his concern was most likely over whether he'd have enough of them to hand out.

Perry, the governor of Texas, cited South Carolina companies that downsized while controlled by a private equity firm Romney once ran. Perry said it would be an "insult" for Romney to come to the state and ask voters to support him now.

Perry campaigned in South Carolina on Monday. The state holds the South's first primary on Jan. 21 and Perry is hoping a strong finish will rejuvenate his lagging campaign. He is skipping Tuesday's New Hampshire primary.
