Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., told Fox News that he departed just before the shooting began. When he walked to his car, a man asked him if Republicans or Democrats were practicing on the field. A few minutes later, shots rang out, DeSantis said.
Steve Scalise, congressional aide shot: What we know so far
Published June 14, 2017
But if Republicans and their billionaire friends think that they can scare us away from a fight with threats and by spending a lot of money saying mean things about me (they actually stuck my face on a dumpster—yes, really!), they've got another think coming.
Together, we’ll fight harder than ever—for students, for seniors, for immigrants, for Muslims, for women, for people who are LGBTQ, for workers, for the sick, for the disabled, and for our planet. And we're ready to show Trump and the GOP that when they run this country for the benefit of the rich and powerful, the American people will hold them accountable.
I know that I've got a gigantic target on my back; the list of those who want me to be quiet is long—Trump, Mitch McConnell, Wall Street, the Koch brothers, the Chamber of Commerce, the NRA .... And I know that they’re planning to spend outrageous amounts of money against me in the weeks and months ahead.
And if we aren't ready to fight back—and fight back hard—it could be too late.
—Senator Elizabeth Warren
