WATCH: GOP Rep Booed at Town Hall for Voicing Support for Military
A Detroit-area congressman was loudly booed by town hall attendees after he said he supported funding for the military.
Representative Dave Trott (R-Mich.) held a town hall event in a convention center in Novi, Mich. on Saturday, after receiving pressure from liberal activist group Michigan People's Campaign, according to the Daily Caller.
A video of part of Trott's remarks shows him saying "I support more funding for the military..." before trailing off under a chorus of boos and several attendees waving red pieces of paper.
Trott, 56, is serving his first term in Congress after defeating Rep. Kerry Bentivolio (R-Mich) in the primary.
Michigan Radio reported much of Trott's crowd was hostile toward him, and that he received a similarly negative response when he voiced support for the Republican leadership's ObamaCare replacement bill.
The Oakland County Republican Party accused Democrats of sending supporters to events to heckle people like Trott.
