On Friday, Phoenix Police said that an investigation and laboratory test confirmed there was no substance in the envelope.

The FBI and bomb squad units were called to the scene as well, and police are investigating the matter, The campaign office was shut down, and the spokesperson said the envelopes were “sent to professionals at Quantico for examination.”
