Governor Walz expressed his condolences in a statement:

Lewiston, Maine is a little smaller than Mankato, Minnesota. I can’t imagine the impact a mass shooting will have on that community. My office has offered Maine any resources they need, and Minnesotans offer our heartfelt condolences as Mainers grapple with our country’s latest violent, senseless tragedy.

Individuals and businesses are encouraged to do the same through sunset on Monday, October 30th.
