Congressman Collin C. Peterson made the following statement today in response to the recent tragedy in Charlottesville, VA.

“Hatred and bigotry associated with the white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and the KKK has no place in our society,” Peterson said. “The tragedy in Charlottesville is another example of the struggles our country faces to unite and confront hate.  My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.”
