Ohio Democratic Party Statement on Today’s Events at the U.S. Capitol

COLUMBUS — The Ohio Democratic Party released the following statement from Chairwoman Rhine McLin in response to today’s events at the U.S. Capitol:

President-elect Joe Biden is absolutely right: the words of a president matter. For too long, this president’s words have fanned the flames of hatred, chaos and racism, and for four years, Ohio Republicans have cheered him on or shrugged their shoulders and pretended to be ‘late for lunch.’ We join President-elect Biden in calling on the president to go on national TV immediately, condemn the violence and demand that his supporters end their seditious attack on the U.S. Capitol. We will continue to pray for our nation and for our nation’s leaders.”
