Former Labor Secretary and candidate for DNC Chair Tom Perez was interrupted by protesters during a candidate forum on Wednesday night.

The forum was brough to a halt when protesters insisted Perez pledge to support primary challenges against Democrats who complied with President Trump’s agenda.

“Commit to supporting primary challengers to fight against Democrats who refuse to resist Donald Trump’s agenda,” one woman can be heard saying.

At the same time, other protesters held up a sign that read, “Dems: #Resist Trump or be replaced.”

In response, Perez told the audience, “Part of the reason I love the Democratic Party, folks, is that it’s a big tent.”
