Rick Perry Vows to Keep Campaigning as Finances Dry Up

Two days after former Texas Gov. Rick Perry was unable to make payroll to his campaign workers, a new report takes an inside look at what's happening in what could be his second failed White House bid.

Perry reportedly ran out of fundraising dollars and could not pay his staffers, The Texas Tribune reported Monday.

Another Texas Tribune story seeks to provide answers.

For one, the Tribune reported that Perry's inability to make the cut to appear in last week's Republican debate on Fox News hurt his fundraising. He instead appeared in a forum that took place hours before Thursday night's main event, along with the other candidates who were not in the top 10.

Perry's next big challenge, should his campaign continue, will be to garner enough support in the polls to earn a place in the next GOP debate, scheduled Sept. 16.

Perry, however, is facing an uphill battle. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush hails from Texas, and the campaign also features Texas Sen. Ted Cruz — two candidates who are well-placed in polls up to this point. Perry, it seems, is playing a game of catch-up.

CNN reported Wednesday that the odds of Perry dropping out of the race are increasing — 33 percent, up from 10 percent on Monday.

The campaign, however, told NPR it's not yet quitting the race. And the fact that Perry has halted paying his campaign staff does not mean he's about to throw in the towel.

"As the campaign moves along, tough decisions have to be made in respect to both monetary and time-related resources," Perry's campaign manager, Jeff Miller said, reports NPR. "Gov. Perry remains committed to competing in the early states and will continue to have a strong presence in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina."

Perry's staff, reports MSNBC, said it will work on a volunteer basis "until the ship is corrected."
