(WVUE) - Senator John Kennedy: "Steve is a good friend, and my thoughts and prayers are with him and his family," Kennedy said. "Hating people because you disagree with them is wrong. It is un-Christian, it is un-American, and it has gotten worse.
"My thoughts right now are with Steve, his family, the aide who was shot, and the Capitol Police officers. It is just a bad day for America."
