Rep. Bill Johnson today released the following statement regarding the bombing at the Boston Marathon:
"Along with every American, LeeAnn and I have heavy hearts, and are sickened by what we are witnessing this afternoon in Boston. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families, and the brave police and fire personnel during this time.
Today's despicable act was met with the very best of the American and human spirit -- first responders and volunteers running towards the blasts to help victims in any way they could. Like we always do as Americans, we'll get through this -- together."
