A large contingent of protesters briefly interrupted the start of a speech by Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker at the Faith and Freedom Coalition historic Tampa Theather. They chanted and unfurled a banner.
Protesters just did some protesty thing as Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker began his speech. Escorted out to Yankees game-like U-S-A chant.

Sheriff's deputies quickly swept in and arrested the group, and other spectators pulled down the banner hanging from the theater balcony.
Walker opened his remarks telling the theater that this is nothing new for him but that he's found protesters are outnumbered by those who support him.
