‘Attack on America’: Florida leaders decry mail bomb terror

An apparently coordinated plot to send mail bombs to an array of figures on the cultural left has dominated national news today.

CNN was evacuated. The Obamas, the Clintons, and Democratic U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz all were targeted Wednesday, following a similar targeting of George Soros on Monday.

The news went global quickly, with the Congresswoman’s office address being used by the conspirators as a false flag.

Florida leaders are reacting to the news of the day. Party divisions notwithstanding, there is a unity against what all agree is terror.

Sen. Marco Rubio was blunt in asserting that despite domestic political divisions, the American spirit is one of unity against terror.

“That’s an attack on America. That’s terrorism,” Rubio said Wednesday, adding that he expected the federal government to “find the people who did this, arrest them, try them, and punish them.

Republican gubernatorial nominee Ron DeSantis likewise condemned these “acts of terror.”

Florida Democratic Party Chairwoman Terrie Rizzo offered a statement: “This kind of targeted hate and violence has no place in our country and will not be tolerated. This isn’t about politics, this is about national security and our number one concern is the safety of Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz and first responders called to these scenes.”

“Unfortunately, we have seen some candidates for office use highly divisive and toxic rhetoric during this cycle. Today’s greatly disturbing events are a reminder that everyone needs to tone it down in the last two weeks and focus on the issues. That’s the type of campaign Floridians deserve,” Rizzo added.
