Aguilar Statement On Republican Baseball Practice Shooting

 Today, Rep. Pete Aguilar issued the following statement in response to the shooting at the Congressional Republican baseball practice this morning:

“I’m horrified by the attack at the Republican baseball practice this morning. The Congressional Baseball Game is a tradition that allows us to pause and put politics aside so we can come together to support a good cause—it represents the very best of who we are. My thoughts and prayers are with Whip Steve Scalise, Capitol Police and staff who were injured in this hateful and horrific act of violence.”

Rep. Aguilar represents California’s 31st Congressional District and has been a member for the Congressional Democratic baseball team for three years.
