Demorcrat, Republican gatherings make awkward neighbors in West Ashley

Not only was Saturday a big politics day in Charleston for Nancy Pelosi's speech in North Charleston, but there was also a protest on King Street and awkwardly close Republican and Democrat events in West Ashley.

Charleston Republicans organized a protest of fundraiser lunch at Fish Restaurant on King Street where Pelosi was in attendance; The Post and Courier has some photos of the protesting people and their signs.

There was also a pair of afternoon political gatherings in West Ashley, and theĀ  Democrat Blue Jamboree picnic at Parkshore Park was just a block from a Republican fundraiser; The Post and Courier has a write-up on that.
