Which Republicans Favor the Economic Stimulus Package?

It's clear that congressional republicans want nothing to do with President Obama's economic stimulus package. Every single republican in the House of Representatives voted against it. Are there any republicans that support the stimulus package. Check with republican state governors....the answer is please hurry and how can I get my share of the money.
Most Republican governors have broken with their GOP colleagues in Congress and are pushing for passage of President Barack Obama's economic aid plan that would send billions to states for education, public works and health care.

Their state treasuries drained by the financial crisis, governors would welcome the money from Capitol Hill, where GOP lawmakers are more skeptical of Obama's spending priorities.
Even the governor of Alaska wants in on the economic stimulus.
The 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, planned to meet in Washington this weekend with Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and other senators to press for her state's share of the package.
Governors can't afford to be ideologues.
