At a Monday rally in Virginia, Republican candidate for Vice President, Sarah Palin, accused fans who had trouble hearing her message of protesting after they requested someone turn the volume up. As reported by the Associated Press, among the crowd of more than 20,000 many were chanting and pointing to overhead speakers while Palin was addressing the audience, which led her to believe they were hecklers causing a commotion.
In response to their perceived protesting the Vice Presidential candidate addressed the fans by stating “I hope these protestors have the courage and honor to give veterans thanks for their right to protest.” Afterwards, the rally continued with support from the audience being shown for her promises made for the benefit of the United States in the event of a McCain-Palin win. The incident comes after a string of negative press regarding the Republican Party’s campaign.
The state of Virginia has reportedly been primarily Republican for the past 40 years, however, it has now become regarded as a battleground state for the current election with a close tie for Republicans and Democrats in winning their electoral votes. Fans for both parties are now gearing up for Wednesday’s final presidential debate.
