Mississippi Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann has released a statement about Monday’s attack on the Boston Marathon. It reads “Our prayers are with the families of the victims. This was an attack on our innocent citizens and on the world’s runners. For whoever did this, no punishment will ever be sufficient.” Hosemann is an avid runner himself who previously participated in the Boston Marathon. Several people were killed and dozens suffered severe injuries when two explosions went off at the finish line.
