Manchin Statement on Boston Marathon Explosions

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

U. S. Senators Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) issued the following statement in response to the horrific explosions at the Boston Marathon.

"Gayle and I join all West Virginians and Americans in praying for the victims of the horrific explosions in Boston. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Boston community, Massachusetts and our nation as we cope with the terrifying incidents at the Boston Marathon. Once again, in the midst of chaos in an American city, we saw heroism from our brave first responders and volunteers. We don't know all the details yet, but it appears this was a senseless act of violence aimed at innocent people who come from all over the world, including dozens from West Virginia, for this special sporting event. We cannot allow cowardice to go unchallenged. We will not allow it to go unpunished."
