McSally Announces To Standing Ovation That Baseball Game Will Go On

There was not expected to be any votes held on Wednesday in light of the shooting. This shouldn't be yet another reason to bash and defend Trump, though his presidency has inflamed passions on both sides.

U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders wasted no time in expressing his regret and disgust that a follower of his campaign had committed such a cowardly attack.

And he urged members of both parties to unite.

"Many lives would have been lost if not for the heroic actions of the two Capitol Police officers who took down the gunman, despite sustaining gunshot wounds", Trump said.

On a day when many foolish people said the wrong things, so many better people said the right things.

Other California Congress members also shared their thoughts for Scalise. Six were killed but she survived, miraculously.

A Federal Bureau of Investigation lab team looks for evidence in the outfield signage at the ball field which is the scene of a multiple shooting in Alexandria, Va., Wednesday, June 14, 2017, after a rifle-wielding attacker opened fire on Republican lawmake.

Jelena Ostapenko stuns Simona Halep to claim French Open crown
Rather than being fazed, Ostapenko was enjoying being front and centre at one of the biggest tournaments in tennis. I think I can still improve my serve, my forehand. "But not many players win their first final in a grand slam".

As awful as it was, it could have been much, much worse. Also injured were a congressional staffer, a lobbyist and two Capitol police officers.

Scalise, 51, is the House majority whip. Members walked over to those Republican lawmakers who witnessed the attack and checked in on them.

Unlike the attack that almost claimed the life of former Arizona congresswoman Gabby Giffords six years ago, there was no knee-jerk talk yesterday about a home inspector's right to carry an assault weapon. The popular annual face-off, which raises money for charity, is scheduled to go forward as planned Thursday evening at Nationals Park in Washington. It has been a tradition since 1909, but when Democrats and Republicans take the field, it will mean much more.

"Finally the shooter was shot behind home plate as he was circling around to the first base dugout where there were a number of us congressmen and other folks", Rep. Mo Brooks told FMTALK1065. So did Jim Costa, D-Fresno, in his remarks to The Bee's Lew Griswold.

When Pelosi warned Republicans to "curb our enthusiasm" in 2009, it was near the height over the health care debate over the Affordable Care Act, a contentious piece of legislation that some Republicans said would bring an end to freedom in the country. "But we do have our differences". We must never let our political beliefs supersede our respect for one another.

From the stands, Vince Wetzel, a resident of Sacramento, California, who is visiting Washington and chose to take in the game, said, "It's just a good call to put aside political differences and just play some baseball".
