After a short break, the event continued, featuring two VIPs with low enthusiasm: outgoing Governor Mark Sanford and Senator Lindsey Graham.
When introduced, every table had attendees who did not stand when Sanford was introduced. Attendees visibly winced when Sanford repeatedly referred to "Jenny and our four kids".
Sanford referred to traveling, telling the audience "we're at a crossroads".
Between the Appalachian Trail and Argentinian ... 'nuff said there.
Graham was then introduced to even more lukewarm response, with the loudest applause coming when he praised fellow Senator Jim DeMint, encouraging Republicans to campaign hard for Demint.
