MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – Republican Party of Minnesota Chairwoman Jennifer Carnahan released the following statement:

“Multiple Asian Pacific Americans lost their lives in last night’s tragic shootings in Atlanta. Our thoughts and hearts are with the families and communities of those lost as well as the Asian Pacific American community as a whole as they grapple with this abhorrent attack.

“It deeply saddens me to watch the recent rise in hate crimes against the Asian Pacific American community. Violence towards anybody because of their outward appearance is despicable and must be broadly condemned.

“We are all Americans and must always treat one another with mutual respect, care, and consideration.”
