LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Texas Gov. Rick Perry has shored up his position as the Republican frontrunner after Wednesday’s G.O.P. showdown in Simi Valley.

Perry heads back out on the campaign trail in Southern California Thursday, after taking part in his first Republican presidential debate.

During Wednesday’s debate, Perry referred to Social Security as a “monstrous lie and Ponzi scheme,” while former Mass. Gov. Mitt Romney said he would work to fix the program, not kill it.

Perry is expected to speak at Roger’s Gardens in Corona del Mar before attending a luncheon fundraiser at The Island Hotel in Newport Beach. He will also attend fundraising and dinner receptions in Los Angeles Thursday night.

Perry will head north to Bakersfield, Fresno and Palo Alto Friday.

    Hey CBS, Rick Perry is all over your site, what’s up with that? You have made your choice? He will Lose.

    Rick Perry can’t compete with the real candidate in this race and that’s Dr.Ron Paul.

    Rick Perry is trying hard to mimic Ron Paul but the people can see right through it; he can’t compete with the Real Deal!

    To the Sheeple – don’t let the media fool you, scare you or make the decision for you.

    Ron Paul 2012.

    Nuff Said.
