Rep. Baldwin comments on AZ shooting

MADISON (WKOW) -- The following is a statement released by Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wisconsin):

"I am shocked and saddened beyond words by the horrific shooting of my colleague, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ), members of her staff, and others at a supermarket in Arizona.  Rep. Giffords was meeting with her constituents, holding public office hours to better serve them. 

Communication between citizens and their elected representatives is critical to the proper functioning of our democracy.  There is no place for violence, under any circumstances.  At the moment, my thoughts and prayers lie with Gabby, her husband, all the victims of this tragedy and their families."
