(WLUK/AP) -- Wisconsin lawmakers are speaking out after the Associated Press reports crude pipe bombs were sent to prominent Democrats, and cable news network CNN.

The bombs meant to target former President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, CNN and others were sent between Tuesday night and Wednesday. No one has been hurt in the incidents.

Both Governor Scott Walker (R-Wisconsin) and Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin) posted to Twitter reacting to the news.

While the investigation continues, Johnson encourages anyone if you see something, say something.

President Trump referred to the acts as "political violence", calling for unification at a press conference Wednesday afternoon.

"I just want to tell you that in these times, we have to unify," Trump said, addressing the tense political environment. "We have to come together and send one very clear, strong, unmistakable message that acts or threats of political violence of any kind have no place in the United States of America."
