Some attendees at a conference in Florida for conservative activists have heckled former US vice president Mike Pence during a speech.

A few attendees shouted, "Traitor!" on Friday as Pence spoke at the Faith and Freedom Coalition's Road to Majority Policy Conference at a resort in Orlando.

Pence ignored the shouts and ploughed through his address.

"It's great to be back with so many patriots, dedicated to faith and freedom and the road to the majority!" Pence said.

At least one of the hecklers was removed by security, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

Many supporters of former president Donald Trump have been angry with Pence after the former vice president said he did not have the power to overturn Democrat Joe Biden's election victory.

During the January 6 storming of the Capitol, angry protesters chanted, "Hang Mike Pence!"
