Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum says he is looking into getting Secret Service protection after protesters tried to shout him down during an appearance in Washington state earlier this week.

Protesters with the Occupy Wall Street movement disrupted a rally in Tacoma on Monday evening, yelling during most of the event. Two people were removed by police. Santorum said he is talking with the Secret Service about having agents assigned to his campaign.

"It’s unfortunate that we are in that situation where folks can get a little rowdy and sometimes a little violent, and so it’s sort of a sad state of affairs," he said. "I’ve been driving around most of this campaign in a truck with one other person, but we are in a different phase and obviously just for the sake of my family that we have to consider. So we are in that discussion right now."

 

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is currently the only GOP candidate with a Secret Service detail.
