If there’s a universal truth of presidential races, it’s that candidates have to deal with hecklers. And as the gallery below demonstrates, the 2012 contest has already had plenty of them — including everything from shouters in the peanut gallery to sign-bearing protesters.
Occupy Wall Street protesters disrupted a rally for Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum in Oklahoma City for 20 minutes on Sunday by chanting, “Get your hate out of our state,” and “Pro-life, pro-war, what are you fighting for?”
Santorum supporters clashed with the protesters and tried to shout them down with “We pick Rick!”
These are some of the more memorable moments of the 2012 race to date.
