Statement Regarding Orlando Tragedy and Twitter and Facebook Post

AUSTIN – Speaking for the Lt. Governor, Patrick Advisor Allen Blakemore said:

“Lt. Governor Patrick and every Texan is stunned and saddened by the outrageous
act of domestic terrorism that has occurred in Orlando. He and Jan are praying for
the victims, their families and their friends.

“Regarding this morning’s scripture posting on social media, be assured that the
post was not done in response to last night’s tragedy. The post was designed and
scheduled last Thursday.

“The Lt. Governor is traveling out of the country, but our social media team has
deleted the posts and graphics. We regret the unfortunate timing of these posts and
ask everyone to join us in praying for the people of Orlando in this awful time.”
