“We are investigating this as an aggravated assault. Several people were in the area and could have been seriously hurt... we are taking the situation very seriously,” the Sheriff's Office told Daily Wire before Timm's arrest.
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://t.co/F4Qi7hk7CR— Rick Scott (@ScottforFlorida) February 8, 2020
Many people supporting Republicans, and in particular Donald Trump, attribute the increasing outburst of hatred and aggression to the acquittal of the US president in the impeachment case.
