This a painful and difficult day for our Capitol Hill family. My thoughts and prayers are with Congressman Steve Scalise, the staff, Capitol Police, and all those who were injured and traumatized by this deplorable, cowardly shooting. I am also extremely grateful for the heroic actions of the Capitol Police and all the other first responders who undoubtedly prevented far worse injuries and saved lives in this tragedy. As a co-captain and founder of the Congressional Women's Softball Game I know I join my bipartisan teammates, staff and volunteers in sending our love, best wishes for a quick recovery and support for our colleagues who were injured, as well as our thanks to the Capitol Police and law enforcement for their expert response.

These games are one of the few opportunities we have to put aside politics and get to know one another as people and friends. We cannot allow evil to prevent us from working together for the important causes for which these games are played, while ensuring the safety and security of all participants."
