HELENA, Mont. – Montana Republican Party Chairman Don “K” Kaltschmidt issued the following statement after today’s events in the Montana House gallery:
“Violence has no place in our political process. The far-left disruption at Montana’s Capitol today was a direct result of extremist rhetoric promoted by a few select legislators and their allies in the media,” Chairman Kaltschmidt said.
“The Montana Republican Party will not be intimidated by the behaviors of a few hateful agitators. We are committed to civil discourse, law and order, and protecting the safety of the public and strongly condemn the riot at the Montana Capitol today. I want to thank our brave law enforcement officers for quickly restoring order. Montana Republicans will continue to pass laws that benefit the people of Montana and defend the values they were elected to preserve.”
