CULLMAN, Ala. – The Cullman County Republican Party on Thursday issued a statement on the chaos that erupted in Washington, D.C. Wednesday, Jan. 6 as the U.S. Congress was in the process of certifying President-Elect Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory over President Donald Trump. A mob of rioters rushed the U.S. Capitol, breaking windows and storming the chamber, while members of Congress and Vice President Mike Pence were evacuated.
Statement sent from Cullman County Republican Party Chairman Kelly Duke:
“The Cullman County Republican Party was not happy with the results of the 2020 presidential election but will never condone the use of violence, unlawful rioting and the destruction of property to achieve any agenda. The party fully supports all the rights guaranteed to every citizen by the United States Constitution including free speech, peaceful assembly, the right to bear arms and the ability to vote in our elections.
“On January 6th the local party was deeply saddened as we watched in horror as a few individuals turned an otherwise peaceful protest in our nation’s capital violent. We are thankful that our local congressional delegation members are safe and proud that they properly contested the election results in Washington within the rule of law. The CCRP will continue to advocate for law and order and conservative Christian values from the courthouse to the White House.”
