KANSAS DEMOCRATIC PARTY’S STATEMENT ON THE VIOLENCE STEMMING OUT FROM THE UNITED STATES CAPITOL

Topeka, KS — On Wednesday, January 6th, thousands of President Donald Trump’s supporters violently stormed inside the U.S. Capitol to incite chaos in the halls of Congress in an attempt to stop the certification of President-elect Joe Biden’s election victory. In response, the Kansas Democratic Party released the following statement.

“The Kansas Democratic Party strongly condemns the violent protests seen at the United States Capitol today.  This form of lawless behavior has no place in our country and does not reflect the values of the American people.  The Kansas Democratic Party calls on Donald Trump, Roger Marshall, Tracey Mann, Jake LaTurner, and Ron Estes to tone down their rhetoric and stop their partisan politics by falsely sowing doubt on our electoral process.  Kansans deserve better from their elected officials.”
