RPT Chairman James Dickey Statement on the Gunman at Congressional Baseball Practice

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Wednesday, June 14, 2017

“Texas Republicans join all Americans in prayer for Congressman Scalise, Congressional staff and family, and everyone who was affected by the horrific shooting this morning. As Texans, we pray especially for the quick recovery of the staffer of Rep. Roger Williams who was wounded. We give thanks that the immediate response of brave law enforcement officers prevented a greater tragedy.

Today our members of Congress will get back to what we sent them to Washington to do: work out the differences that divide us, and make America a better place. It is their work — not violence against fellow Americans we may disagree with — that will move our nation forward.”
