West Virginia's senators
Station WSAZ in Charleston asked our senators about Charlottesville and President Trump's response. While neither mentioned the president, both condemned the actions of the hate groups.
From Senator Manchin:
“Gayle and I extend our deepest sympathies to those who lost their lives this weekend in Charlottesville. Heather Heyer died standing up against the forces of evil and hatred, and Troopers Bates and Cullen died serving the highest ideals of their community, state, and country. I condemn in the strongest possible way the hatred and bigotry carried out by white supremacists this weekend. This hateful ideology has always contradicted the very foundation our country was built on. I denounce white supremacists, the KKK, neo-nazis, their ideologies and their allies. West Virginia was founded in the fight against slavery, and I know my neighbors join me in denouncing cowardly acts meant to divide our country with bigotry and hatred.”
From Senator Capito:
"The hate and violence expressed by Neo-Nazis and other white nationalist groups in Charlottesville has absolutely no place in America. This tragedy was domestic terrorism and should be treated as such. It is incumbent upon all of us to reject this type of racism and bigotry."
Congressman David McKinley
As of 9:00 AM today, I could not find any public response (press release, Facebook, or Twitter comment) to Charlottesville or what President Trump has said about Charlottesville by David McKinley.
