Local News

Senator Cassidy: “the president conceded today… Joe Biden is the next President.”

BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Unrest took place at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, January 6 as protesters stormed the United State Capitol.

Louisiana’s delegation is mostly represented by Conservative Republicans.

All of them immediately denounced the violence carried out by what they call a small group of rioters.

That includes United States Senator Bill Cassidy.

Cassidy spoke with Fred Childers about what happened on Wednesday.

Senator Cassidy says, “I’m thinking to myself…this is the US Capitol, if this was a foreign country this would be an act of war.”

During the interview, Cassidy reflects on what it was like to be inside the U.S. Capitol when the violence unfolded earlier this week.

“I’m sitting next to Ben Sass, and Tim Scott, they’d taken their jackets off, we’re all looking for stuff to use as a club in case somebody invaded, Cassidy said.

Cassidy followed by saying, “I was disappointed in the election results, but you live with it.”
