Explanation

Upon reading this sentence, you might have filled in something like “went to” in the blank. One good clue is that the carpetbaggers needed suitcases, so they were probably traveling. Process of elimination works well here — vanquished, blacklisted, boycotted, and berated all add ideas not indicated by the sentence. Only inundated (flooded, overwhelmed) makes sense.

Inundated.
