ODP Statement on Virginia GOP Ballgame Shooting

OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma Democratic Party has released the following statement regarding the shooting attack during a GOP baseball practice:

“As news updates come in, our thoughts are with the victims of an early morning shooting that injured majority whip, Rep. Scalise, members of his security detail, and GOP staffers. Despite political differences, violence is never the answer. We are grateful for the quick response by U.S. Capitol Police on apprehending the suspect and avoiding what some reporting say could have been a massacre.”
