Rand Paul: Scalise's presence at congressional baseball practice most likely prevented 'massacre'

Davis, a Republican from Taylorville, said he made a decision to keep the dirty clothes on: "My breaking point is done". But I'm here because we're all Americans.

"I am relieved to hear that my friend and colleague Steve Scalise is in stable condition, and am continuing to monitor any news on the three other staff and security members who were shot in this morning's attack", said IL congressman Darin LaHood.

Davis said he did not see the shooter.

"Davis attended the baseball practice Wednesday morning but wasn't injured". The President has spoken to Scalise's wife and chief of staff, as well as House Speaker Paul Ryan, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the chief of the Capitol Police. "Steve Scalise needs everybody's prayers right now".

Asked about security, he said it would likely be stepped up, but said "We've got to stop". "We have to bind together as Americans, not as Republicans and Democrats".

Davis also described how the Congressional baseball game, held every year between House Democrats and Republicans for charity, brings both sides of the aisle together.

"This could be the first political rhetorical terrorist act that we've seen on our soil and we can change that. It has got to stop".

"If you go to baseball practice for a game for charity and you have to dodge bullets and you watch your colleagues lay in the field?" This is his "breaking point", he said. Hate has to stop.

"We have to have unity in this country".
