January 11, 2011
WASHINGTON – Rep. Judy Chu, D-Calif., issued the following statement after the shooting in Tucson, Arizona earlier today that left six people dead and at least 12 wounded, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords:
“My heart and prayers go out to Congresswoman Giffords, her family, staff and all the victims of this senseless and terrible tragedy. This is indeed a sad day for our nation.
"Sadly, this horrible incident is a reminder of how truly dangerous and divisive our political discourse has become. No matter one's political leanings, attacks on public officials and citizens based on differences of opinion are unconscionable and go against everything our great nation stands for."
