WATCH: VP Pence condemns insurrection: 'Violence never wins'
Vice President Mike Pence said Wednesday night "violence never wins," as he spoke in the Senate Chamber more than six hours after pro-Trump mobs attacked the Capitol and forced lawmakers to flee.
Pence made the remarks as the Senate resumed debating the Republican challenge against Democrat Joe Biden’s presidential election victory.
Pence said "today was a dark day in the history of the United States Capitol." But he said thanks to the "swift efforts" of police and law enforcment, "the Capitol is secured and the peoples' work continues."
The vice president condemned those who stormed the Capitol, insisting, "You did not win."
