Supporters of ousted USC board member Darla Moore gathered at the State House Wednesday in favor of bringing the school's top donor back to the position.

The rally, set up through a Facebook page, took place just after noon on the North Steps of the Capitol.

The group was expecting more than 400 people to attend the protest of Gov. Nikki Haley's sudden removal of Moore from the board. However, it's estimated fewer than 200 people showed up in support.
