U2's Bono meets with Congressman Scalise's staff, signs card
WASHINGTON - The Latest on the investigation of the shooting of a Republican lawmaker and others at a baseball practice last week (all times local):
U2 lead singer Bono has met with members of Rep. Steve Scalise's staff and signed a card wishing the congressman a speedy recovery.
Scalise was grievously injured when a gunman opened fire at a Republican baseball practice last Wednesday, injuring several people. The congressman is in fair condition at MedStar Washington Hospital Center after a bullet struck his hip.
U2 performed in the Washington, D.C., area Tuesday night and Bono was at the Capitol on Wednesday, meeting with Republicans and Democrats. He was pressing for Congress to fully fund the foreign aid budget for next year despite deep cuts proposed by President Donald Trump.
That's according to the statement from the One Campaign. Bono is a co-founder of the organization.
