Rep. Davis: Political Hate and Rhetoric Has to Stop

The GOP rep, who was present at the Alexandria shooting, called for the Congressional baseball game to go on as planned.

Rep. Rodney Davis (R-IL), who was present at the shooting in Alexandria, VA, called on Wednesday for “political hate and rhetoric” in the United States to stop.

“We stand here in this hallway [of the U.S. Capitol], I have just as many friends on the Democrat side of the aisle,” Davis said. “The majority of what we do in Washington is bipartisan.”

“The disagreement over major policy issues are what what make America great,” he said.

Davis also expressed hope that the Congressional baseball game will go on as planned, and that donors will “double down” on their financial support. The proceeds from the game go to charity.
