Rep. Langevin: The civil service has changed since the Capitol riot | app

WARWICK, RI (AP) — After the Capitol riot, longtime U.S. Representative Jim Langevin said he briefly thought the madness and recklessness of dividing the country would finally end. That didn’t happen, and the Rhode Island Democrat says that’s one of the reasons he’s quitting Congress.

Langevin has seen some of his fellow Republicans say enough is enough. He said he hoped they would all focus on finding common ground, acknowledging that as Americans “we’re in this together.”
