While Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum and Ron Paul are the four remaining presidential candidates, the Palmetto State brought one of the strangest political rallies involving a pair of non-candidate “candidates.”
Stephen Colbert of the “Colbert Report” teamed up with former candidate Herman Cain at a rally on the campus of the College of Charleston.
After 3,300 mostly young people showed up, attendance was stopped inside the event. Another couple thousand people or more were forced to watch from behind the gates. In essence, this was the largest political rally in South Carolina in the days leading up to the primary, with no close seconds.
