Protesters attempted to disrupt an event with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis at the Iowa State Fair on Saturday with whistles and cowbells.
DeSantis was talking with Republican Gov. Kim Reynolds of Iowa during her Fair-Side Chat series when protesters began making a ruckus, briefly interrupting the event.
Reynolds chastised the protesters, and said that every candidate needs an opportunity to speak and be heard so that voters can make informed decisions.

“We’re going to have an opportunity to hear from each and every candidate,” Reynolds told the protesters. “That’s what we’ve been doing.”
One of the individuals protesting was holding up a black bag with the phrase “Thank God for Abortion” written on it. The protesters were eventually removed from the area by security, resulting in loud cheers from the packed crowd attending the event.
DeSantis also dealt with protesters when he arrived in Iowa on Friday, who heckled the presidential nominee.
“Racist, fascist, anti-gay, Ron DeSantis, go away,” the protesters chanted as DeSantis was on his bus tour, according to the Times.
