“Words cannot express the sadness and sorrow that I feel for the families and friends who lost loved ones in the horrific shooting at Pulse Nightclub. This tragic act of violence is utterly devastating, and a direct attack on the LGBTQ community as our nation celebrates LGBT Pride Month. 

     “While many details are still yet unknown, I stand shoulder-to-shoulder in solidarity with the LGBTQ community and all the people of Orlando. These senseless acts of violence can never be understood, but we must find strength in knowing that justice will ultimately prevail. 

     “I offer my deepest sympathies during this dark hour and stand united in prayer with our nation at this most difficult time.”
