National and local Democrats are condemning a Republican candidate who fired at a target with Debbie Wasserman Schultz's initials on it during a recent GOP event at a Pembroke Pines shooting range.
The Weston congresswoman said, "I find this type of action serious and disturbing. Tonight I am going to have to talk to my young children about why someone is pretending to shoot their mother. Trivializing violent behavior is the kind of extreme view that has no place in American politics."
In an effort at damage control in the liberal leaning congressional district, Republican candidate Robert Lowry said in a statement: "Debbie Wasserman Schultz is a fine lady and we wish her and her family well. It is her continued support for harmful policies affecting seniors and her failure to act for the general benefit of US Congressional District 20 is what we take issue with."
