McConnell on Charleston Tragedy
‘Our hearts go out to the families who have been affected by this awful tragedy.’
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made the following remarks on the Senate floor today regarding the tragic shootings in Charleston, South Carolina:
“At this time I would like to take a moment to discuss the terrible news out of Charleston.
“This is a true tragedy. It's always awful when a tragedy like this occurs, but to happen at a house of worship makes it even worse. Churches should be a place of refuge, a place where people feel safe and secure, a place of mercy, a place of compassion.
“The depth of loss these families must be feeling is simply awful. So I want the American people to know the Senate is thinking of them today and the victims that they love. We're also thinking of the entire congregation at this historic church. We'll continue to do so as more about this about this tragedy is learned in the hours and days to come.
“Our hearts go out to the families who have been affected by this awful tragedy.”
