Steve Scalise Returns to Congress

Sep 29, 2017

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana made an emotional return to the floor of the House of Representatives three months after he was shot at a Congressional baseball practice by a left wing activist specifically targeting Republicans. He arrived on crutches and received a standing ovation from his colleagues. He thanked the two capitol police officers he credits with taking down the shooter and saving his life. He also talked about how his faith in God kept him alive that day and during the difficult surgeries that followed. He was very grateful to have survived and be back at work.
