Congressman Farenthold Statement on Shooting at Congressional Baseball Practice
Congressman Blake Farenthold (R-Texas) issued the following statement Wednesday in response to the shooting Wednesday morning.
“My thoughts and prayers are with Rep. Steve Scalise, Capitol Police, and the other victims of this morning’s shooting. Thank you to the Capitol Police for their quick response to stop the shooter. The Congressional Baseball Game is a bipartisan event enjoyed by thousands every year. That someone would target members of Congress and their staff in this setting is horrifying.”
