It turns out a far left “Republican” Senator from New Hampshire isn’t a big draw in the Palmetto State … even in one of the GOP establishment’s safest regions.

Sources close to the Horry County, S.C. “Republican” Party tell FITS that party leaders are having a difficult time selling tickets for U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte’s speech to the group this weekend.

Ayotte (RINO-N.H.) – will attend a private reception at the Pine Lakes County Club in Myrtle Beach at 6:15 p.m. EDT this Friday. This event – which you can attend for the bargain basement price of $125 – will be followed by a dinner, which will run you $75.

According to sources familiar with the planning for the event, “it’s undersubscribed.”

“Full-court press is on to sell tickets,” one source told us.

Meanwhile another source – one close to the campaign of U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (RINO-S.C.) – said his staffers were busily making phone calls trying to drum up attendees for Ayotte.

How embarrassing … sort of like when S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley held a big party for three visiting governors and nobody showed up.

Just wait until the Horry County Tea Party hears about this, right?

Errr … on second thought, never mind.
