WASHINGTON — Louisiana lawmakers said Wednesday they were shaken their colleague Steve Scalise had been shot, but they plan to rally as usual to support one of their own.

“It’s a crazy day, a bad day a sad day," Rep. Ralph Abraham, R-La., told the USA Today Network. “We’ll get through it as we always do.’’

Abraham said in one show of support he and others plan to attend Thursday's congressional baseball game where Scalise was supposed to play.

“I’m not on the team. I’m not that good of a baseball player,” Abraham said. But “a show of solidarity on both the Republican and Democratic side, which I think you’ll see tomorrow, will be a good thing.’’

“We’re going use this to spring board any positive way forward," he said.
