Stars from “Duck Dynasty” stole the show before President Obama arrived at the State of the Union Tuesday night.

Rep. Vance McAllister, Louisiana Republican, brought the show’s star Willie Robertson as his guest to the State of the Union.

Mr. Robertson endorsed Mr. McAllister leading up to the special election in Louisiana and gave the newly-elected member a big bear hug in December to congratulate him on his victory.

Several GOP lawmakers, including Rep. Paul Ryan, snapped photos or got autographs from Boss Hog, as Mr. Robertson is known on the show.

Sen. Lindsay Graham brought Korie Robertson, Mr. Robertson’s wife, as his guest.

Mr. Robertson’s father, Phil, was in the news in December after making anti-gay remarks in GQ magazine. He was briefly suspended from the show, but later reinstated.
