Former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords
Gov. Doug Ducey
U.S. Rep. Martha McSally
U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva

Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild

Oro Valley Mayor Satish Hiremath

“While any act of violence against fellow citizens is a tragedy, it is particularly heartbreaking when citizens are targeted because of their role as public servants. Today, our democratically-elected public officials, their staff and first responders became targets of violence. And in times of tragedy, we must remember that before we are Democrats or Republicans, we are Americans. What happened today should feel personal to every American. As such, I want Representative Scalise and the other victims of today’s shooting to know that they have a nationwide community of support that stretches coast to coast. Our thoughts are with them and their loved ones.”
