For former Texas Governor Rick Perry, hope springs eternal. 

Perry will return to Iowa on Monday, a state he hopes will help resurrect his prospects for becoming the Republican presidential nominee. Recent Iowa polls show Perry trailing his GOP rivals by double digits, and the Texan's political action committee RickPAC, has hired four political operatives from the Hawkeye State ahead of a town hall meeting Monday in Sioux City, the Des Moines Register reported.
