Republican presidential contender Rick Santorumclashed with Tacoma Occupy protesters during his first visit to Washington state, a place he said would be a "momentum changer" heading into Super Tuesday.
Minutes into Santorum's speech Monday, protesters began chanting and shouting. They rarely stopped over the next half-hour.
"I think it's really important to understand what this radical element represents," Santorum, a former Pennsylvania senator, told hundreds of supporters gathered outside the Washington Historical Museum. "What they represent is true intolerance."
