“My heart goes out to my friend, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, her staff, her constituents and their families. This is an unspeakable tragedy that has shaken all of us.

Not only am I heartbroken by this grievous injury to Gabby, members of her staff and several constituents, but all of us also mourn the loss of Judge John M.

Martha and I will continue to keep Gabby and all of the victims and their families in our thoughts and prayers as we hope for a full and speedy recovery.”
