Video: Rep. Paul Ryan Heckled During First Solo Speech

| by Michael Allen

Rep. Paul Ryan hit the campaign trail, as Mitt Romney's vice presidential pick, at the Iowa State Fair where he was interrupted by hecklers (video below).

One heckler kept yelling "Stop the war on the middle class," while two more female hecklers tried to climb on the soap box platform next to Rep. Ryan.

Rep. Ryan's supporters tried to cover the protesters with Mitt Romney signs as the Congressman tried to talk over the noise.

Rep. Ryan said in response to the heckling: "It's funny because Iowans and Wisconsinites like to be respectful. These ladies must not be from Iowa and Wisconsin."

Finally, the hecklers were removed by police.
