BRUNSWICK, ME – U.S. Senator Angus King (I-Maine), a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, released the following statement today on the shooting in Orlando, Florida:
“Today, our hearts are filled with grief. Like all Americans, I condemn this reprehensible attack. The victims, their families, those who were injured, and all those affected remain in my thoughts and prayers. In this dark moment, I am grateful to the law enforcement officers whose swift and courageous actions saved the lives of many.
