“Today’s senseless shooting wasn’t just an assault on our Republican colleagues, but an attack on our country and the United States Congress. While this act of malice has shaken all of us to our core, such cruelty and cowardice will never deter the House of Representatives from continuing our collective mission to serve our constituents and our districts.

“As we send our love and support to those involved, let us acknowledge the heroes that have emerged from this tragic incident, from the first responders and the brave men and women of the Capitol Police to the bystanders who called 9-1-1 and the members of Congress who sprung to action to save lives. Their valor in the face of danger deserves nothing short of our upmost praise and gratitude.

“I have no illusion as to how politically divided we are. Yet, every day in Congress, Democrats and Republicans work together. We govern together. When one of us is attacked, we grieve together. And I have full confidence that together, we will be able to heal, support one another, and weather this storm.”
