In Case You Missed It: This Was a Violent Attempt to Disrupt Our Democracy, and it Failed

This week, Rep. Pete Aguilar authored an op-ed for CNN and the San Bernardino Sun to discuss the important bipartisan nature of the annual Congressional Baseball Game and to underscore that the horrific act of violence targeting the Congressional Republican baseball team was a failed assault on our nation’s democracy.

In the editorial, Rep. Aguilar also reflects on his experience as member of the Congressional Democratic baseball team, having participated in the annual exhibition game for the last two and a half years. The Congressional Baseball Game raises funds for local DC charities. This year, the event sold nearly 25,000 tickets and raised over $1 million.

Rep. Aguilar’s full editorial can be read at CNN here and in this Sunday’s edition of the San Bernardino Sun, Redlands Daily Facts and the Press-Enterprise.
