Sen. Tom Cotton
Violence and anarchy are unacceptable. We are a nation of laws.
This needs to end now. https://t.co/zyrFUFYZm1

Rep. Rick Crawford
As peace and the rule of law is slowly being restored, now would be a good time for President Trump to address the nation from the White House and strongly condemn today’s defilement of the U.S. Capitol.

The violence and destruction taking place at the Capitol are unacceptable and must cease.

Gov. Asa Hutchinson
To see protesters in our nation’s Capitol invading the Halls of Congress & disrupting the peaceful transfer of power is reprehensible.
