Dem County Chairs’ Call On GOP To Denounce Extremists,
Acknowledge Biden Officially President

Springfield, IL – In light of the FBI note that warns of potential armed protests being planned at all 50 state capitols and the US Capitol, President Kristina Zahorik of the Illinois Democratic County Chairs Association (IDCCA) released the following statement and called on all Illinois Republicans to publicly acknowledge Joe Biden was officially elected President:

“Yesterday’s news that the FBI is warning of armed protests at state capitols is alarming, but not surprising. These dangerous threats should be labeled exactly what they are, domestic terrorism. The voters have spoken, the courts have spoken, and the Congress has spoken. Joe Biden was elected the next President.”

“Republicans throughout Illinois, including County Clerks and other Election authorities, should publicly denounce these violent calls to action and clearly state that Joe Biden was elected President in a free and fair election. Anything less will be considered approval of these attacks against democracy.”
