Connecticut Secretary of the State Denise Merrill Statement on Violent Insurrection in Washington, D.C.

Until today, more than a hundred years of American history were marked by peaceful transfers of power every four years. What we are witnessing right now is an attempted coup, in broad daylight and on live television. It will fail.

The people of America spoke clearly in November and elected a new administration in a free and fair election that was hailed as the most secure in our nation’s history. The will of the American people, and our American democracy will prevail.
