Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) on Wednesday condemned the actions of a shooter who opened fire at a Republican congressional baseball practice earlier in the morning, and who reportedly worked for Sanders’ 2016 presidential campaign.
In a statement he tweeted and read on the Senate floor, Sanders said he was “sickened” by the gunman’s actions.
“Violence of any kind is unacceptable in our society and I condemn this action in the strongest possible terms,” Sanders said. “I am sickened by this despicable act.”
