Statements from Cantor, Palin on Giffords

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R., Va.):

 

“I was deeply horrified to learn today of the shooting of Representative Gabrielle Giffords and others in Tucson.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Congresswoman Giffords and her family, her staff, and the residents of Tucson on this sad day.   As this serious situation continues to develop, I remain in close communication with leaders of both parties, the Speaker’s office and the Sergeant at Arms.  We will remain in constant communication regarding any schedule changes.”

My sincere condolences are offered to the family of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and the other victims of today’s tragic shooting in Arizona. 

On behalf of Todd and my family, we all pray for the victims and their families, and for peace and justice.
