GOP Rep. Chris Stewart booed at Salt Lake City town hall

A crowd of more than 1,000 people in Utah's Democratic stronghold booed Republican U.S. Rep. Chris Stewart at a Friday night town hall as the congressman defended GOP positions on health care, public lands and immigration.

Audience members yelled, "Do your job," imploring him to investigate and denounce connections between President Donald Trump's campaign and Russia and to hold the new administration accountable.

Stewart started the event at a high school in Salt Lake City by acknowledging that most of those in the crowd didn't vote for him, but he said he thinks it's still important to hear them one of the few comments he made that received applause.

"It's my job to be here," he said. The crowd applauded and one person shouted, "Tell that to Chaffetz!"
