The Republican Party of Pennsylvania joins in and supports the following statement issued by the Republican National Committee regarding the violence in our nation’s capital today:

“The members of the Republican National Committee strongly condemn the violence in and around the United States Capitol Building today in Washington, DC.

These violent scenes we have witnessed do not represent acts of patriotism, but an attack on our country and its founding principles.

Our Founding Fathers established a nation of laws, not a nation of anarchy. We call for all those involved to listen to law enforcement officials and help restore order in our nation’s capital.”
