BLUFFTON, S.C. -- Laura Sterling had never voted before 2008, much less been a political activist.

But Friday night she was one of three self-described "little South Carolina moms" hosting a $175-per-couple reception for Michele Bachmann, the Minnesota firebrand congresswoman who is rapidly becoming the adopted favorite of many conservatives in the Palmetto State.
