TALLAHASSEE, FL- Republican Party of Florida (RPOF) Chairman Blaise Ingoglia today released the following statement regarding news of shots fired into the Volusia County Republican Office.
“Last night, we had a local Republican Victory Office in Volusia County shot at multiple times. It’s unbelievable to me that we have reached a low in political discourse where volunteers for campaigns now how to fear for their safety,” said RPOF Chairman Blaise Ingoglia. “We stand against any type of violence against any volunteer, Republican or Democrat. People should have the right to exercise their right of free speech without fear of retaliation.
“The RPOF is thankful no one was harmed in this shooting, but we must make one thing clear— violence is NEVER the answer, under any circumstance. Thank you to Volusia County’s law enforcement for their quick response to keep Floridians safe. We will continue our efforts to ensure staff and volunteers feel secure in our offices, despite these concerning events.”
