Leaders on both sides of the political aisle are condemning the violence that occurred during a protest on Capitol Hill on Wednesday.
Those who incite violence and sow chaos have no home in the Republican Party. These attitudes and actions are antithetical to our Party’s core principles and values, and stand in direct conflict with our nation’s Judeo-Christian beliefs and moral foundation. (/5) pic.twitter.com/QueusOvMNP

In America, we have fair elections and peaceful transfers of power; democracy prevails over chaos; and those who commit violent acts are held accountable. That won’t change today. This unpatriotic attempt to overturn our election – and silence the voices of Arizonans – will fail.

I totally agree. Violence is not the answer. https://t.co/rzKfMpPKuV

Peaceful protests are the hallmark of our constitutional republic. Violence should never be tolerated, and I condemn the violence we experienced at the U.S. Capitol today. Those who have violently violated the laws should be prosecuted to the fullest extent.

This is America. We do not destroy buildings and institutions in order to save them. I encourage everyone to express themselves in a peaceful way and I hope our elected officials will listen to the concerns of the people. We all need to stop the fighting and start the listening.
