"I want to express my appreciation to the people of Louisiana for the tremendous outpouring of support and prayer for Congressman Steve Scalise and his family this morning.
Steve is a champion for freedom, one of the great leaders to come from among our ranks. We have every expectation that Steve will make a full recovery.
Meanwhile, please continue to pray for Steve, his wife, Jennifer, and their children. Additionally, please pray for the other victims and their families.
