"Several months ago, windows were broken at my office at the State Capitol, twice.
I said it then, and I’ll say it now, there is absolutely no justification for violence to express an opinion. I condemn the violence at the United States Capitol building today and hope that all citizens will seek peaceful resolution to our differences.”
