Former Congressman Bob Barr, the Libertarian Party’s 2008 presidential nominee, and former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson, the Libertarian Party’s 2012 and 2016 presidential nominee, each reacted to the breach of the Capitol building today.
Bob Barr tweeted:
Whatever it was that the rioters at the U.S. Capitol were trying to accomplish today was seriously set back by the idiocy of their actions.— Bob Barr (@bobbarr) January 7, 2021
Gary Johnson tweeted:
Donald Trump accomplished many great things in office. He also served as a polarizing force for many of his detractors. The electorate has spoken and we need to join together as Americans united on the acceptance of a new President. Best wishes President-Elect @JoeBiden. 2/2— Gov. Gary Johnson (@GovGaryJohnson) January 6, 2021
