TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - The Pima County Republican headquarters was vandalized overnight following the historic events that happened in Washington D.C. yesterday that resulted in the death of one and others injured.
Tucson Police responded to a call this morning and located a rock that had been thrown through a glass door. Officers say there was a hole in the door but not large enough for anyone to enter.
Newly Elected Pima County Republican Party Chairman Shelley Kais said, “In Washington D.C. on January 6, 2021, Americans arrived in peaceful protest for their voices to be heard and their ballots to be counted. Many people believe their freedom is at risk and they are shackled in the land of liberty. The disappointment and anger of failed leadership and destroyed trust from years of bickering and partisanship ploys bubbled up in a blinded rage which led to violence in our Capital. Last night the lawlessness arrived in Tucson as thugs vandalized the Pima County GOP Headquarters. The people of Tucson will not stand for violence and lawlessness. We offer condolences to the family of Ashli Babbitt and those injured in the hallowed halls of our Republic. And today we ask prayers for our country, wisdom for our leaders, peace in our communities, and justice for our citizens.”
There are no immediate details of who is responsible or the motivation behind the vandalism and officers do not have any suspects in custody at this time.
