On Friday, a blue-haired agitator engaged in a fight with the crowd during one of Governor Ron DeSantis’ campaign appearances in Iowa, which descended into pandemonium.
DeSantis was speaking alongside Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds at the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines.

In a video of the altercation, the woman wearing a “b****es get stuff done” T-shirt threw punches at one individual.
In the video, a member of the Iowa State Patrol can be heard advising the protester with blue hair to refrain from engaging in disorderly conduct.
The account that shared the video indicated that law enforcement moved some protesters to the rear of the throng.
The caption of another video shared by a leader of Students for DeSantis indicated that protesters had picketed the event.
DESANTIS EVENT IS PACKED.
Iowans showed up to hear the future president speak. (Protestors too )

In an earlier video, a group of protesters donning the same offensive shirts demonstrated with bullhorns directly in front of DeSantis’ campaign bus.

The protesters implored DeSantis to “go back to Florida” as he interacted with fairgoers in the vicinity.
“Go back to Florida!” one protester shouted at the Republican presidential candidate.
In the state’s first-in-the-nation caucus, the conservative governor ignored the protestors and instead focused on introducing himself to potential electors.
