Allentown, Pa. – U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) issued the following statement regarding today’s attack on Capitol Police officers:
“The Capitol Police officers who were ambushed today outside the Russell Senate Office Building are heroes. They put themselves in harm's way and stopped an individual who was attacking the Capitol.
