Members of the controversial group, The Proud Boys, were present.

Protestors held signs in support of President Trump and reading ‘Stop the Steal’.

In the nation’s capitol, lawmakers were evacuated after protestors breached the Capitol doors and even entered the Senate Chamber.

Lawmakers are not present in Tallahassee but will return for their first round of committee meetings for the 2021 session next week.
