shot at an event in Tucson, AZ this morning:
"It is with the
deepest sadness that we have received word of the attack on
Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, members of her staff, and her
constituents. This terrible act of violence is a national tragedy, and
today is a very sad day for our country.
"My prayers, and the

with such dedication and distinction."
