TRENDING: Liberal activists crash Bachmann's carefully choreographed NH rollout
Nashua, New Hampshire (CNN) – In a surprise clash of conservative activists versus liberal activists, advocates for the president's global AIDS plan crashed Rep. Michele Bachmann's carefully choreographed speech to a gathering of New Hampshire Republicans.
As the Minnesota lawmaker spoke to the GOP state committee on Saturday in Nashua, a line of liberal activists burst into a chant and waved signs that read, "Michele Bachmann, We Insist! End AIDS treatment waiting lists."
The activists were incensed at proposed budget cuts to PEPFAR, the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief.
As they attempted to circle the room, getting closer to the platform where the congresswoman was speaking, conservatives in attendance sprang into action – booing, shouting down the activists and ushering them out of the room.
