ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) – Some attendees at a Florida conference for conservative activists interrupted former Vice President Mike Pence during a speech Friday.
Some attendees shouted, “Traitor!” As Pence spoke at the Policy Conference of the Coalition for Faith and Freedom on the Road to the Majority at a resort in Orlando. Pence ignored the screams and reviewed their address.
“It’s great to be back with so many patriots, dedicated to faith and freedom and the path to the majority!” Said Pence.
At least one of those who interrupted was removed for safety, according to the Orlando Sentinel.
Many supporters of former President Donald Trump have been angry at Pence after the former vice president said he did not have the power to overturn Democrat Joe Biden’s election victory. During the assault on the Capitol on January 6, angry protesters chanted, “Hang Mike Pence!”
