Social media active Arizona leaders, Rep. Ruben Gallego, Rep. David Schweikert and Sen. John McCain were unusually silent in the aftermath of the shooting of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), one congressional staff member, a lobbyist, and two Capitol Police officers at a Republican congressional baseball practice this morning by a gunman who is a Bernie Sanders’ supporter.
The two injured Capitol Police officers were identified as David Bailey and Crystal Griner.
Zachary Barth, a legislative correspondent working for Texas Rep. Roger Williams, was also among those shot. Matt Mika, who works as a lobbyist for Tyson Foods, suffered multiple gunshot wounds.
