“While everyone is safe, KSP has asked everyone to evacuate the state Capitol and is investigating a threat received by the Secretary of State’s Office,” Kentucky Democratic Governor Andy Beshear wrote.

“We are aware of similar threats made to other offices across the country.”

“Out of an abundance of caution, the Capitol will remain closed for the rest of the day,” Michigan State Police spokeswoman Lori Dougovito stated.

“So far there’s no cause for greater alarm as we turn the building over for law enforcement to sweep,” Michigan House Republican Floor Leader Bryan Posthumus said.

“This is unfortunately a reality for our modern world but I applaud the quick and effective work of the first responders and capitol security.”
