Two days after the shootings in Alexandria, Virginia on GOP members practicing baseball, Washington D.C. is still shaken from the impact. The charity baseball game was always a way for both parties to come together, but this time even more so.

Congressman Jim Renacci joined the Ray Horner Morning Show to talk about his op-ed in the Columbus Dispatch, which calls for the parties to begin working together. In his six-and-a-half years in congress, Renacci believes the political rhetoric is out of control, saying the bipartisan measures rarely get reported. He stresses the importance of the parties working together on bigger issues such as solving the debt.

The Ohio congressman was at a bipartisan breakfast when the shootings occurred, and he discussed his relationship with House Whip Steve Scalise and his fellow Republicans on the baseball field.

AUDIO: Sen. Brown On Alexandria Shootings

Written by
On Wednesday, GOP members of Congress were shot at on a baseball field in Alexandria, Virginia, which caused a few injuries, including wounds to House Whip Steve Scalise. The Republicans were practicing for a charity baseball game at Nationals Park, with the Democrats warming up at a field a few miles away.

It was decided the game will go on. Current US senator and former member of the Democrat baseball team, Sherrod Brown, joined the Ray Horner Morning Show to talk about the shooting. Brown wants something to be done about the violence in the country, and hopes President Trump can be “more of a healer and not a divider” in times like these.

As far as the charity baseball game goes, Brown says the game must go on, believing a cancellation of it would “look cowardly."

AUDIO Cavs Fall Short, Look To Regroup

Written by

Tom Withers from the Associated Press joined the Sam and Brad Show Tuesday to recap the Cavaliers season as they lost the NBA Finals series 4-1 to the Golden State Warriors.

 

Remember the days of shopping for clothes at Sears? What about the Blue Light Specials at Kmart? Those days are rapidly becoming a distant memory, thanks to the way retail has changed in the age of the internet.

Jonathan Walsh, consumer reporter at WEWS/News 5 in Cleveland, joined the Ray Horner Morning Show to talk about the near and distant future of retail stores. Walsh says traditional malls and brick-and-morter stores have fallen by the wayside as far as what the customer wants. Young buyers are looking to spend their money on attractions than straight retail.

Because the consumer wants to spend their dollars on entertainment in addition to retail, Walsh believes destination shopping centers such as Crocker Park and Legacy Village are still doing fine.
