Congressman John K. Delaney’s (MD-6) work to support local candidates in Iowa and his campaign message of unity and addressing the needs of the future was highlighted in coverage published today in The Hawk Eye of Burlington, Iowa.
It’s utterly heartbreaking to see this tragic loss of life at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh. To attack people in a house of worship because of their faith is pure evil. Thank you to the brave members of law enforcement who responded at the scene.
I want to thank the brave men and women of the Secret Service and law enforcement who worked, and are working, tirelessly on the investigation into these attacks. It is extraordinary that they identified this domestic terrorist as quickly as they did and I am thankful that no one was hurt and hope that there are no remaining packages.
Democratic presidential candidate Congressman John K. Delaney (MD-6) says the poll underscores the importance of a new approach to politics focused on bringing the country together, themes Delaney highlighted when he announced that he was running for president last year.
“Every American, of every political stripe, should be horrified by today’s news, which is still unfolding, and I thank the Secret Service and law enforcement for their work today. This appears to be an effort to attack multiple former presidents and first ladies, elected officials and members of the media – this is an attack on the foundations of our republic.
“For centuries, the United States set the infrastructure standard, but we’ve let partisan politics and backwards thinking put us in neutral. China is thinking big, making investments and focusing on the future, while we can barely maintain highways built by Eisenhower,” said Congressman Delaney.
