Massachusetts Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley is condemning political violence following the attack on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband over the weekend.
Pressley — who has also faced threats in the past — said at a campaign stop in Boston on Sunday that her thoughts are with the speaker and her family.
"It's a sad day, it's a worrisome time, but our response to this is not to retreat and go in the corner, our response is accountability," she said. "Our response is voting. That's really what I believe ultimately."
Pressley called the attack undemocratic — and compared it to the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.
Other members of the Massachusetts delegation also spoke out against the attack.
On Twitter, Assistant House Speaker Katherine Clark called the situation "horrific," and wished Pelosi a swift recovery.
Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey wrote that Americans must condemn "all violence —including politically motivated attacks — and the misinformation and hate that fuels it."
