Reps. Moulton, Russell Issue Joint Statement in Response to Virginia Shooting
June 15th, 2017
The Congressional Warrior Caucus remains committed – now more than ever – to rising above partisan politics and division to improve our great republic
Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressmen Seth Moulton (D-MA) and Steve Russell (R-OK) issued a joint statement in response to the June 14 shooting at the Republican congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, VA. Russell and Moulton serve as chairmen of the Congressional Warrior Caucus, a bipartisan group of combat veterans and warriors committed to rising above partisan politics to address national security issues.
Their joint statement: “As former combat veterans, we understand the trauma our colleagues are going through and our thoughts and prayers are with them, their staff, families, and all those impacted by yesterday’s tragic event. Our nation was founded under the principle of e pluribus unum—out of many, one. Whether it is playing baseball together as one Congress, or eagerly working to share and debate our ideas, we must use a level of civility that should serve as an example for the nation, united in purpose to serve the American people. The Congressional Warrior Caucus remains committed – now more than ever – to rising above partisan politics and division to improve our great republic.”
