The Things That Cross Party Lines

As bitter as partisan battles can be, real tragedy crosses party lines, and recieves sympathy from those of all political views. One of those events happened today went Arkansas Democratic Party Chairman Bill Gwatney was shot and killed – the Gunman was later arrested, but died from wounds sustained during his capture. Below is the statement from the Democratic Party:

“Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean, DNC Vice Chair Lottie Shackelford, and former mayor of Little Rock, and Michigan Democratic Party Chair Mark Brewer, the President of the Association of State Democratic Chairs, issued the following statement on the passing of Arkansas Democratic Party Chair Bill Gwatney:

‘On behalf of the Democratic Party our thoughts and prayers are with Chairman Gwatney’s family and friends and the extended Democratic family in Arkansas. With this senseless act of violence we have lost a good friend and honorable man. Bill will be remembered for his hard work and dedication to the Party, and he will be sorely missed.'”
