Alexandria, Virginia’s own representative in Congress hopes the shooting that injured his colleague can be a uniting force.
We got Congressman Don Beyer — who reps Virginia’s 8th District, including Alexandria — at Simpson Field Wednesday, where James Hodgkinson opened fire on the GOP’s practice sesh … injuring Rep. Steve Scalise, among others.
He tells our camera guy that this tragedy should get members from both sides of the aisle coming together — for now, at least — ahead of Thursday’s congressional baseball game … which is moving forward as scheduled.
Quick side note … Simpson Field sits next to T.C. Williams High School, which is the same school “Remember the Titans” is based on. Beyer’s hoping it has the same unifying effect here.
