Rep. Bryan Steil calls for Gov. Tony Evers 'to accept the President’s offer of assistance'

From the Full report: Two militia arrests made; Jacob Blake, shot by Kenosha police, optimistic series

Rep. Bryan Steil, R-District 1, issued this statement this morning following the third night of violence in Kenosha: 

"I ask the nation to join me in praying for our community of Kenosha. Last night the situation went from bad to worse. We are once again still gathering the facts. The violence must be stopped. Yesterday, Governor Evers sent 250 National Guard to Kenosha. This was woefully insufficient. Yesterday, I asked the President for additional assistance. He agreed. The offer was rejected by Governor Evers. Again, I call on the Governor to accept the President’s offer of assistance, supported by Kenosha officials, which includes National Guard from other states and federal law enforcement officers. The violence needs to stop now.”
