Anti-Trump crowds rule at Republicans’ town halls

COTTONWOOD HEIGHTS, Utah—A crowd of about a thousand people, dominated by opponents of President Donald Trump’s agenda, packed a raucous town-hall event here in the latest example of increased activism targeting Republican members of Congress.

Five-term Rep. Jason Chaffetz won his most recent race by nearly 50 points, but returned to his home district to find himself confronted by a sign-waving, heckling and booing chorus.

Town halls held by Republican Reps. Diane Black of Tennessee and Justin Amash of Michigan on Thursday also drew big numbers and tough questions. At earlier home-district events in states including Colorado, Florida, Virginia and California, GOP House members were surprised by rowdy crowds, often declaring support for the Affordable Care Act, which Republicans have vowed to repeal.
