Rick Santorum Responds To Group Of Hecklers, Gets Glitterbombed

Republican hopeful Rick Santorum was shouted down by hecklers in Tacoma, Washington, as the former Pennsylvania Senator campaigned in the Pacific Northwest Monday. He later was pelted with yet another glitterbomb. “I think it’s really important to understand what this radical element represents,” Santorum told supporters, while struggling to be heard over the rabble. “What they represent is true intolerance.”

The Wall Street Journal’s Danny Yadron reported that , “Shortly after the former senator from Pennsylvania began addressing a receptive crowd, a group of young protesters in the front row began chanting slogans such as ‘go away’ and ‘right-wing bigot,’ a reference to Mr. Santorum’s opposition to gay marriage, one of them said afterward. The surging GOP-candidate then spent the next hour battling the vocal minority.”
