WASHINGTON –Today, U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) released the following statement:

 “Today many have put themselves on the line to protect our Republic. Despite the violent and lawless actions of many of those at the Capitol today, we will not be deterred from finishing the job we started. I’ve spoken with my colleagues, and our plan is that tonight we will finish our work. While this was a dark day in our nation's history, we will stand united in the face of those who seek to divide and sow chaos. Anarchy will not prevail. Democracy will prevail.”
