South Dakota's Congressional Delegation respond to today's violence at Capitol


News Staff - January 6, 2021

WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Rep. Dusty Johnson, R-S.D., is condemning the siege on the Capitol today by pro-Trump protesters.

Members of Congress were moved to secure locations when the violence began.

Johnson shared the following:

“Well, I’m safe, but it has been hard to see the United States Capitol overrun by people who crave violence. Capitol Police are doing everything they can, but they are overrun. This is just a terrible situation. Too many people have been sewing the seeds of anger and division, and this is what we get because of that. This is the tragic harvest, and it needs to stop.”

The offices of South Dakota Republican U.S. senators John Thune and Mike Rounds said the senators are also safe.

Rounds stated Wednesday afternoon:

"As a nation, we should stand together in opposition to the violent acts and lawlessness that occurred at the U.S. Capitol today. Violence and destruction are never the answer. We are better than this, and it's past time for cooler heads to prevail. I continue to pray for our great country."

Gov. Kristi Noem said in a tweet, “We are all entitled to peacefully protest. Violence is not a part of that. What’s happening in the Capitol right now must stop.”
