Rep. Walker Welcomes Back Majority Whip Steve Scalise
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Mark Walker (R-N.C.) today released the following statement after House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) returned to the U.S. Capitol for the first time since he was injured in a shooting at a congressional baseball practice on June 14, 2017:
"When my friend and teammate Steve Scalise took a bullet on that baseball field in June, he also took on the weight of a nation where divisiveness is being projected at a feverish pitch. In his return to the Capitol today, he has shown how strength, faith, and unity can lift us through difficult times. Let us take this moment to dedicate our focus on policies and not make attacks personal as we work hard to deliver for the people. We are glad to have you back, Steve.
