The host of Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report" appeared this weekend at the University of South Carolina in the capital of Columbia, where he was given a hero's welcome. The mayor declared him the state's "favorite son" and he received a key to the city.
"I promise, if elected, I will crush the state of Georgia," Colbert told the crowd. "Our peaches are more numerous than Georgia's. They are more juiciful."
Colbert's coverage of his campaign was sponsored by Doritos.
