(KSL News) While Sean Hannity pumped up crowds at UVSC Monday night, Michael Moore found support in a crowd of nearly 15 thousand in Arizona.
Moore made an appearance at the University of Arizona as part of his "Slacker Uprising Tour". He says he will visit as many college campuses as possible before the November election.
A week from today, he'll speak to students at UVSC. And while Utah is an unexpected stop for Moore, he said he couldn't turn down the offer from UVSC.
Michael Moore/ Filmmaker, Political Activist: "The students there just begged us to please come..."
The event caused plenty of controversy at the University of Arizona. Both Bush and Kerry supporters came out to demonstrate at the event.
Moore only charged a fee of about $27 thousand to speak in Tuscon. UVSC was charged $40 thousand. University officials in Arizona tell us they were able to get Moore at a lesser fee because the state has more swing voters and guarantee a large crowd.
