Pence Heckled at FL Conservative Conf. 06/19 08:28


   ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Some attendees at a conference in Florida for 
conservative activists heckled former Vice President Mike Pence on Friday 
during a speech.

   A few attendees shouted, "Traitor!" as Pence spoke at the Faith and Freedom 
Coalition's Road to Majority Policy Conference at a resort in Orlando. Pence 
ignored the shouts and plowed through his address.

   "It's great to be back with so many patriots, dedicated to faith and freedom 
and the road to the majority!" Pence said.

   At least one of the hecklers was removed by security, according to the 
Orlando Sentinel.

   Many supporters of former President Donald Trump have been angry with Pence 
after the former vice president said he did not have the power to overturn 
Democrat Joe Biden's election victory. During the Jan. 6 storming of the 
Capitol, angry protesters chanted, "Hang Mike Pence!"
