Rep. Nancy Mace said the last few days quickly transformed from the greatest in her political career to the worst.
Mace said her excitement from being sworn in on January 3, as the first Republican woman to be elected to Congress from South Carolina, quickly turned to horror as pro-Trump mob descended on the US Capitol.
"This has been the best and worst week of my life as an elected official," she told CNN's Don Lemon this evening.
"My worst fears came true today, this is a sad day for our nation," she continued. "I'm heartbroken, I'm disgusted and I'm angry and enough is enough."
"This needs to stop," she added. "It needs to stop right now tonight. We need to end it."
