Vice President Mike Pence is showing support for Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) in words and action.
Scalise was injured last Wednesday when he was shot in the hip by a gunman, who fired on Republican members of Congress as they practiced for the Congressional Baseball Game in Virginia. To support his recovery, Vice President Pence donated blood Tuesday during a blood drive to benefit Scalise and others who were injured in the incident.
