The Congressional Baseball Game scheduled for tomorrow is expected to proceed as planned, a day after the horrific shooting at the field where the GOP congressional team was practicing earlier today.
Ryan talked about the House being a family and said that “an attack on one of us is an attack on all of us,” and in that spirit of coming together, the game at Nationals Park tomorrow is set to proceed as planned:
