Protesters shout down Tom Corbett, Chris Christie at Primanti's campaign stop

Posted By on Fri, Jun 6, 2014 at 4:45 PM

More than three-dozen protesters showed up to a Gov. Tom Corbett campaign stop this afternoon with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

The Protesters arrived shortly after 3 p.m. and lined up across the street from Primanti Brothers' Strip District location on 18th Street. They attempted to greet the governor as he exited his vehicle, but Corbett was whisked in the back door. The protesters, who were also Tom Wolf supporters, then blocked the entrance to the front door of the restaurant:

Inside Corbett and Christie met with supporters and reporters. Christie, however, decided to get his sandwich to go. "You think I'm going to eat it in front of you guys?" Christie asked.

The Protesters waited outside and Corbett only smiled and waved to chants of "One-term Tom."
