UM: Eric Cantor

The Detroit Free Press reports on the speech by U.S. Rep. Eric Cantor, the Republican House majority leader, delivered Monday afternoon at UM’s Michigan League. Cantor focused on themes of self-reliance and limited government, according to the report. The talk was given against a backdrop of protestors: ”About two dozen stood up with their backs to Cantor during the question-and-answer time. They repeatedly interrupted Cantor with shouts, including heckling him on gay marriage and health care. Supportive members of the audience repeatedly applauded to cover the protesters. The crowd of protesters started outside. They were loud enough that their chants could be heard inside during Cantor’s speech.” [Source]
