WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) today issued the following statement in response to the shooting in Orlando, Florida:

"My heart goes out to all those affected by the horrendous act of terror in Orlando, and Susan and I join all North Carolinians in keeping the victims and their family members in our thoughts and prayers. 

"In midst of such a horrific tragedy, we are reminded of the true character of our nation and its people, witnessing the courage and bravery of law enforcement officials and first responders, as well as the generosity of everyday Americans who have already formed long lines to donate blood to help save the lives of victims.  The exceptional values and resiliency of America demonstrate why we will never be intimidated by the likes of ISIS terrorists and their cowardly acts of evil."
