Sen. Bernie Sanders says he is “sickened by the despicable” act of  supporter James T. Hodgkinson after he shot five, including GOP Rep. Steve Scalise during a baseball practice in Alexandria, Va.

Sanders said, “I have just been informed that the alleged shooter at the Republican baseball practice is someone who apparently volunteered on my presidential campaign. I am sickened by this despicable act. Let me be as clear as I can be. Violence of any kind is unacceptable in our society and I condemn this action in the strongest possible terms.”

“Real change can only come about through nonviolent action and anything else runs against our most deeply held American values.”
