"This year marks the 35th annual gathering of the SEUS/Japan conference, which brings together senior-level executives from Japan and seven states in the Southeast to explore business opportunities between the two countries. Five governors from the Southeast will be leading their state delegations to the conference."
Since the the 7SE states have 5 GOP governors I guess this could be called a GOP boondoggle eh? IF 5 governors went the GOP was in the majority.
