“We are outraged by this senseless act of violence toward our great volunteers,” said Duval GOP Chairman Dean Black in a statement on Facebook. “The Republican Party of Duval County will not be intimidated by these cowards and we will not be silenced. I call on every Republican in our great city to stand up, get involved, and show these radicals that we will not be intimidated from exercising our Constitutional rights.”

Mayor of Jacksonville Lenny Curry posted a statement on Twitter condemning the senseless act of violence.

“I just spoke to the local GOP chair. This is outrageous. The hate is toxic and dangerous. Thankfully no one was injured but certainly they are shaken after being targeted because they were registering voters. I’ve spoken to the Sheriff and of course his team is on top of this,” said Curry in a statement on Twitter.

The case also caught the attention of President Donald Trump who tweeted out a stern warning.

Both Florida senators – Marco Rubio and Rick Scott – weighed in as well.

 

 

This appears to be a politically-motivated attack on hard-working volunteers in Duval County. Thankful that no one was hurt. @DuvalGOP will not be silenced or intimidated. They will redouble their efforts to support strong Republicans in NE Florida and around the state! https://twitter.com/duvalgop/status/1226273637214408705 

 
 
 
 

 

Timm was arrested several hours later and charged with two counts of Aggravated Assault on a Person 65 Years of Age or Older, one count of Criminal Mischief, and Driving While Driver’s License Suspended, according to Jacksonville’s Sheriff’s Office.

Said the Duval County Republican party in the aftermath of the incident: “The Republican Party of Duval County plans to redouble its efforts to register voters and will continue its fight with renewed intensity to re-elect President Donald Trump.”
