Local Republicans and Democrats are calling for unity after condemning the shooting that critically injured U.S. Rep Steve Scalise.
Whatever the motive of the shooter at a congressional baseball practice, some Republicans say they're being threatened like never before. He died from injuries sustained in a shoot-out with Capitol Hill police who were at the scene in Alexandria, Virginia. Sanders acknowledged Wednesday that Hodgkinson had apparently been among many volunteers on his 2016 campaign.
Sue Hodgkinson spoke to reporters Thursday outside her IL home.
Those who knew him say nothing suggested he was capable of such an attack regardless of his strong anti-republican views.
"He said, 'I understand, ' and said he needed to take the gun to a range to shoot it, Watson said".
Hodgkinson, 66, a former home inspector, left an ample trail, both online and in his uprooting from IL to Virginia.
Hodgkinson had been known by his friends to be a staunch Senator Bernie Sanders supporter, and very anti-Trump. She says she learned her husband was involved when she received a call from a news reporter.
"I'm sorry that he did this", she added.
In the hours after the attack in Alexandria, Virginia, a picture began to emerge of a shooter with a mostly minor arrest record who worked as a home inspector and despised the Republican Party.
