The numbers are in for the two Texans that competed in tonight's Iowa presidential caucuses.
In a field of seven GOP republicans, Congressman Ron Paul came in third; Governor Rick Perry came in fifth.
Rep. Paul told a crowd in Ankeny, Iowa, that tonight's vote is a confirmation of his views on limited government. He also said he's the one to beat President Obama in the fall.
Meanwhile, Governor Perry said he'll stay positive, despite attacks from his political rivals.
