VP NOMINEE: Paul Ryan Heckled At Fair

Mitt Romney’s vice-presidential pick, Paul Ryan, made a stop at the Iowa State Fair Monday. 

The Republican congressman from Wisconsin spoke at the Des Moines Register soapbox along the grand concourse. Ryan faced several protesters while he spoke, making it difficult to hear what he was trying to say.

Members of Iowa CCI were protesting Romney/Ryan’s plan to privatize Medicare.

State Troopers did help with crowd control and removed some of the protesters.

Gov. Terry Branstad and Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds are serving as Ryan’s personal escorts on the fairgrounds.
