    At least six state capitol buildings across the country were evacuated after receiving bomb threats Wednesday morning.

    State capitol buildings in Connecticut, Georgia, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, and Montana all reported bomb threats, prompting investigations by state police and local authorities. Each of the threats appeared to be a hoax email sent to numerous government employees claiming explosives had been placed in the capitol buildings.

    "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 in a post on X. "We are aware of similar threats made to other offices across the country."

    A spokesman for Kentucky Secretary of State Michael Adams said that the threat was sent to multiple secretaries of state across the country as a "mass email," the Lexington Herald-Leader reported. Adams' office added that the email claimed bombs had been placed in state capitols.

    The Michigan State Capitol posted on X that the building would be closed for the remainder of Wednesday as authorities continued investigating.

    "Out of an abundance of caution, the Capitol will remain closed for the rest of the day," Michigan State Police spokeswoman Lori Dougovito said, according to The Detroit News.

    Michigan House Republican Floor Leader Bryan Posthumus said in a statement to The Daily Wire that he and his team were in his office "when security informed us of the threat and evacuated us quickly and professionally."

    "So far there's no cause for greater alarm as we turn the building over for law enforcement to sweep," Posthumus added. "This is unfortunately a reality for our modern world but I applaud the quick and effective work of the first responders and capitol security."

    Capitol buildings in Connecticut, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, and Montana all reopened after authorities investigated the threats and gave the all-clear. No state or local authorities have reported observing any suspicious activity or finding any suspicious objects on capitol grounds.
