(CNSNews.com) - In a tweet late Monday night, Sen. Josh  Hawley (R-Mo.) said his family was threatened by "Antifa scumbags" while he was out of town:

Tonight while I was in Missouri, Antifa scumbags came to our place in DC and threatened my wife and newborn daughter, who can’t travel. They screamed threats, vandalized, and tried to pound open our door. Let me be clear: My family & I will not be intimidated by leftwing violence.

 

Hawley has made headlines in recent weeks after announcing he will object to the congressional certification of the Electoral College vote on January 6.

The threats aimed at him follow the graffiti vandalism at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's Louisville, Kentucky home and an apparently coordinated graffiti attack at the San Francisco home of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi this past weekend.

Left-wing activists are in D.C. this week to oppose conservative supporters of President Donald Trump, who plan to demonstrate in downtown Washington on Wednesday when Congress is expected to formally conclude the presidential election in favor of Joe Biden.

D.C. Metropolitan Police Chief Robert Contee announced on Monday that the National Guard will assist police with crowd management.
