Watch: Protesters Completely Take Over Adam Schiff's Victory Speech as He Flounders On Stage

Pro-Palestinian demonstrators disrupted the victory speech of Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff of California on Tuesday, following his advancement to the Senate election in November.

During Schiff's celebration, a chant of "ceasefire now" emerged from the crowd, drowning out his attempts to speak further.

“We are so lucky, so lucky to live in a democracy where we all have the right to protest. We are so lucky to live in that kind of democracy that we want to make sure that we keep this kind of democracy,” Schiff remarked at one point during the interruptions.

Despite the removal of some protesters, others remained scattered throughout the crowd, hindering Schiff's ability to continue at times.

Even as Schiff attempted to conclude his speech by acknowledging the protesters, the chanting persisted.

CBS described Schiff as "clearly shaken" by the protest.

As of Wednesday morning, Schiff and Republican Steve Garvey were leading the pack to advance to the Senate special general election, securing 33.2 percent and 32.4 percent of the votes, respectively, after 47.6 percent of the votes were tallied, as per The Washington Post.

Democratic Rep. Katie Porter was in third place, while Democratic Rep. Barbara Lee was in fourth.

The primary also determined who would serve the final weeks of the unexpired term of the late Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein.

In that contest, the Post reported Garvey leading Schiff 34.6 percent to 30.8 percent with 48.3 percent of the votes tallied at the time this article was written.

Progressive Adam Green, a supporter of Porter, criticized Schiff in a statement, as reported by NBC.

“Adam Schiff put his own selfishness above democracy by lifting up Republican Steve Garvey, who will now turn out Trump voters in key House races that could determine control of Congress,” Green said, referencing an ad blitz in which Schiff targeted Garvey, a tactic that increased Garvey’s recognition among voters.

“Katie Porter faced a barrage of negative ads from billionaires and special interests, as Adam Schiff spent millions to prop up a pro-Trump Republican,” he said.

Garvey used a baseball analogy to describe the day.

“Keep in mind this is the first game of a doubleheader,” he said. “So keep the evening of Nov. 5 open.”
