Over a dozen lawmakers joined crowds on day of Capitol riot

CHARLESTON, WEST VIRGINIA (AP) — A second Republican lawmaker from West Virginia who marched to the United States (US) Capitol to support overturning Democrat Joe Biden’s presidential win said in a radio interview on Monday that he hopes US President Donald Trump “calls us back”.

State Senator Mike Azinger told the broadcast outlet that the crowds loyal to Trump were “inspiring and patriotic”. “I think the President laid out the point of the mission,” he added, speaking to West Virginia Metro News. “It was to pressure the Republican congressmen to challenge the electoral votes.”
