ELKHART — U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski, R-Ind, said in a statement Thursday that there must be a peaceful transition of power when President-elect Joe Biden is inaugurated on Jan. 20.

Walorski was one of 139 U.S. representatives and eight senators who, after supporters of President Donald Trump stormed the Capitol on Wednesday, voted to object to the certification of the presidential election results from either Arizona, Pennsylvania or both.
