After seeing the horrible events that occurred at the Capitol on Jan. 6, incited in large measure by the rhetoric of President Donald Trump, I call on Congressman Pete Stauber and all of his fellow Republicans to speak to the country and say: “We were elected on the same ballot as President Trump who continues to say the election was manipulated so he did not win. We voted for President Trump and are disappointed that he did not win, but that is what happened. We know the election was free and fair. We need to move forward, accept the Electoral College vote totals, and accept that Joe Biden is the legitimately elected president of the United States."
I look forward to working with others to draw this country back together.”
