No one was injured; Jacksonville vehicle attack draws nationwide response
Hours after a van plowed through a Republican Party tent where volunteers were registering voters, Jacksonville police arrested a 27-year-year man on two counts of aggravated assault on a person over 65 years old, criminal mischief and driving without a license.
Gregory William Loel Timm was identified as the person behind the wheel of the van that struck the tent set up the parking lot of a Walmart Superstore at the corner of Atlantic and Kernan boulevards about 3:50 p.m. Saturday.
Sens. Marco Rubio and Rick Scott both called the attack “politically motivated,” with Rubio tweeting, “Thanking God that no one was injured.” Scott echoed that in his own tweet, adding, ” @DuvalGOP will not be silenced or intimidated. They will redouble their efforts to support strong Republicans in NE Florida and around the state!”
