U.S. Congressman Mac Thornberry (R-Clarendon) issued the following statement on the attack in Orlando:

"The victims of this morning's horrific shooting in Orlando are in my prayers, as are their families. Early news reports indicate that the terrorist who committed this act may have been compelled by radical Islam. Law enforcement and the intelligence community will make that determination. In the meantime, this attack is a sobering reminder of the lethal reach of a murderous ideology - one we must fully confront if we hope to defeat it."
