DFL Party Statement on the Attack on Rep. Angie Craig


Today, DFL Party Chairman Ken Martin released the following statement after news broke that Representative Angie Craig was assaulted in her apartment building this morning:

“I was shocked and horrified to hear that Representative Angie Craig was assaulted this morning. It is a relief to hear that the injuries sustained by Representative Craig are not dire, and I wish her a speedy recovery. I am grateful the D.C. police responded quickly to the situation and I hope the assailant will be swiftly brought to justice.”

“While we do not know the motivations of the attacker, I believe it is important for leaders on both sides of the aisle to step up and make it clear that political violence of any kind is completely unacceptable.”
