Bachmann gets heckled, attacks Buffett at SC stop

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) _ Presidential candidate Michelle Bachmann's three-day swing through South Carolina started with a heckler attacking her stance on gay marriage.

Bachmann told the crowd of 300 at a stop in Spartanburg that she believes marriage is between one man and one woman. A man in the crowd kept shouting a question at the White House hopeful about whether she was anti-gay marriage, but Bachmann continued her speech emphasizing conservative social values.

The Minnesota Republican also took a shot at billionaire Warren Buffett, who called for millionaires to pay more taxes and share the sacrifice to pay for government. Bachmann says Buffett should back up his words by writing a big check to the government.

Bachmann came to South Carolina fresh off her win at an Iowa straw poll over the weekend.
