(TAMPABAY) — Florida Sen. Marco Rubio was interrupted by hecklers Tuesday during a 20-minute speech to Florida delegates at Innisbrook Golf and Spa Resort.
The heckling began midway through Rubio's remarks, when a bearded, middle-aged man with a tattoo on his neck stood up and shouted "Hey Rubio!" The man had been sitting there, with no security badge, quietly at one of the tables.
"We demand that the GOP stop whoring themselves out to the big money interests that are raping this planet in trying to squeeze every last dime out of the working class," the man shouted to Rubio.

Boos and hisses followed, and two men with wires in their ears escorted the man through the kitchen doors.
Rubio handled the interruption with humor, to the delight of the crowd.
"I guess he's not happy with the hotel assignment," Rubio said. "Apparently he stumbled into the wrong convention. Did he eat the food?"
