Chairman Stovall’s Statement on Alexandria Shooting

Our heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to Majority Whip Steve Scalise, Texas Rep. Roger Williams’ congressional aide Zack Barth, Tyson Foods director of government relations Matt Mika, two Capitol police officers and all others impacted by the tragic events in Alexandria, Virginia today.

We should take this as a reminder that we, as Americans’, must always be vigilant, as an attack can come from anywhere or anytime.

The quick response and heroism by the House Majority Whip’s security detail undoubtedly saved lives today. We wish all those injured today a speedy recovery.

I want to also commend the Representatives’ plan to go ahead with the charity baseball game tomorrow. We must never give in to those willing to do us harm.

God Bless America,

Robert Stovall
Chairman Republican Party of Bexar County
