Frontrunner

Santorum Heckled at WA Event

Rick Santorum, the new national frontrunner in the GOP primary, got an unpleasant welcome during his campaign’s first visit to Washington state. Occupy Tacoma protesters filled the front row of the museum where Santorum spoke and disrupted the event. Santorum called the protesters radicals and told them to “go out and get a job.” Santorum's visit coincided with the passage of Washington's law legalizing gay marriage; he met with state lawmakers and religious leaders shortly after Gov. Christine Gregoire signed the bill and urged them to “continue the fight.”
