Biotech entrepreneur and 2024 presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy is holding a campaign event at the Roundabout Diner in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

However, a man named Tyler Anderson from New Hampshire was recently taken into custody and accused of threatening Ramaswamy and his supporters.

According to investigators, Tyler Anderson, 30, of Dover, is accused of sending a threat in response to an automated text message from the Ramaswamy campaign regarding an upcoming political event in Portsmouth.

Anderson texted, saying, “Great, another opportunity for me to blow (his) brains out!”

He further added that he was “going to kill everyone who attends.”

He continued, saying, “I hope you have the stamina for a mass shooting,” according to investigators.

A representative for the Ramaswamy campaign, Tricia McLaughlin, stated, “We are grateful to law enforcement for their swiftness and professionalism in handling this matter and pray for the safety of all Americans,”

Political science professor Chris Galdieri of Saint Anselm College stated, “I think everyone is still trying to figure out how this new world of campaign technology works,”

Galdieri stated, “It’s not just scary for the candidate and for the candidate’s supporters, but it’s corrosive to the whole idea of democracy, of citizens participating in the democratic process, and then the electoral politics.”

“One of the hallmarks of politics in New Hampshire has always been that our candidates are accessible,”

He added, “It doesn’t matter if you’re running for governor or president of the United States or city council, you are accessible to the folks who live here, whether they’re your friends and neighbors or folks who are trying to get to vote for you in your primary for president.

“And these sorts of statements, these sorts of threats make that just harder to execute.”

He added, “So I’m grateful to them for that.”

Galdieri further stated, “These are, from a candidate’s perspective, extraordinarily dangerous and scary messages. It’s fortunately been a long time since we’ve seen real violence against a presidential candidate,”

He continued, “But the memories of, you know, the Robert Kennedy assassination in 1968, George Wallace being shot in 1972 — these are things that, if you are a candidate for president, these things lurk in the back of your mind.”

According to US Attorney Jane Young, there is a zero-tolerance policy for federal crimes committed in the state and claimed, “We are committed to working 24 hours a day to address anything that comes in,”

She added, “We treat all cases equally to ensure safety for everybody in this state.”
