Statement from Arizona Democratic Party Chair Alexis Tameron:
“It’s a tragic day in our country. This senseless act of violence is simply unjustified.
“Regardless of what political party we affiliate with, or where we stand on the issues, violence is never the answer to resolve our differences. We’re Americans first, and we must always take care of one another. We hope this single act of cowardice does not persuade our elected officials to stop the civil discourse with their constituency, yet now more than ever, find common ground on the passionate issues of both sides.
“The Arizona Democratic Party joins the rest of the country in praying for the speedy recovery of Majority Whip Steve Scalise, Zachary Barth, Matt Mika, and the unbelievably brave Capitol Police officers Crystal Griner and David Bailey.
