CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) –
Regardless of party affiliation or political labels, the shooting of Congressman Steve Scalise for House members across the country is an issue putting them on the same page.
North Carolina’s 9th District Congressman Robert Pittenger calls it a somber day.
“We’ve got reason together,” Pittenger said. “We have to have reasonable discussion. We have to have a civil discourse, and that’s what’s needed today.”
