Who Is Steve Scalise? Republican Majority Whip Shot In Virginia

”A highly popular politician in Louisiana, Scalise, 51, represents the state’s 1st Congressional District. He was elected in 2008 in a special election to replace Bobby Jindal, who had just been elected governor.

Since then, Scalise has always gotten more than 65 percent of the vote in primaries, avoiding runoff elections, the New Orleans Times-Picayune has reported. In November, he garnered 75 percent of the votes in his district.

The turning point in his career was a 2012 win that made him chairman of the influential Republican Study Group. He beat Rep. Tom Graves, R-Ga., who had been unanimously recommended by the group’s founders prior to the election.”
