State Representative Chris Campbell (D-West Lafayette) today issued the following statement after the Tippecanoe County Democratic Party headquarters shots fired:
"Tippecanoe County has been my home for the last three decades," Campbell said. "I attended college at Purdue University. I was married here. I raised a family here. I was a coach for both of my children's soccer teams. I have represented this district and its interests in the halls of the Indiana General Assembly.
"Tonight's Tippecanoe County is unrecognizable. I am heartbroken. The attack on the U.S. Capitol and the Tippecanoe County Democratic Party headquarters is an attack on democracy itself. This type of political violence demonstrated across the nation was fueled by inflammatory rhetoric that must come to an end.
"This division needs to stop immediately. We need to get back to a place of civility. It is time for We The People to come together to rebuild a healthy democratic society that we can be proud of. State and local leaders must condemn all acts of political violence, and I hope my colleagues join me in my condemnation of today's events."
