Update, April 1: The Post and Courier has a full write-up from the rally.

Update, March 31: Well the Charleston rally has come and gone with some 75 people showing up.

College of Charleston Student Body President Seaton Brown made a plea for Governor Sanford to take the money to save higher education funding.

The debate is still churning between the governor and legislature on how and if the state will get some $700 million in stimulus funding. You can get the latest on our stimulus topic page.

Oh, and don't forget that the Columbia rally happens tomorrow.

Original post: If you're pissed that Sanford's not having the federal stimulus package then there are two events where you can protest in support of it.

In Charleston you can go to the "Support the Stimulus" rally on Tuesday, March 31, from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. at Brittlebank Park in downtown. Get more details at their Facebook page.

Or, if you really mean business, you can travel to Columbia for the "People's Stimulus Rally" on Wednesday, April 1, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the Statehouse.

But, if you hate the stimulus package, here's where you can go protest it.
