Some booing Clinton as they hold up ban fracking, anti TPP & Jill signs. Chants of "Hillary" try drowning out hecklers. via @lateshiabeachum— Dan Zak (@MrDanZak) July 29, 2016
Those hecklers are pretty loud. And persistent. One yells, "Never Hillary!" before being backed back into the hallway.— T. Becket Adams (@BecketAdams) July 29, 2016
The boo-ers were positioned right above one of the press sections— Hadas Gold (@Hadas_Gold) July 29, 2016
Several isolated hecklers. Hillary supporter hells "sore loser" at her as she's escorted out. Crowd chanting Hillary.— James Hohmann (@jameshohmann) July 29, 2016
The chants of "Hillary," which are drowning out heckles, are sometimes drowning out Clinton's speech in the arena— Chris Megerian (@ChrisMegerian) July 29, 2016
