I don’t think Rep. David Price, D-NC, expected this. Call it the post-Scott Brown Tea Party phenomenon. He’s clearly uncomfortable in the video, which is via Randy Dye’s blog.

The crowd was civil, but not subservient. They didn’t buy any of his glib professorial answers. Here’s what Betty Dye, who posted it on YouTube, had to say:

Congressman Price meeting with citizens at Cultural Center in Holly Sprigs NC Jan 23, 2010. None of his supporters showed up, just us. 5 Policeman ended up being called in to observe event, once again Conservatives had a peaceful debate with a progressive liberal.

Could be an interesting election season.
