Good morning it is a warm and humid start to today with a frontal boundary that will be lifting off to the north. Temperatures getting to 985 for the Hyde.

Clearing on Friday with a high back in 95 I'm KM SS meteorologist Dan holidays and today and now partly cloudy skies 76 degrees of south wind. At six miles per hour. Little warm and windy Wednesday. In south central Kansas basically carbon copy of the day before which stock is high temperature. Yesterday 93 degrees normal high 86. A copy in that sense a little less wind yesterday afternoon but still up around thirty miles per hour for most of the day. 811 now with Stephen Ted and we wanna talk with the sporting an ABC news correspondent Karen Travers at the White House. We're talking about the aftermath of that Virginia shooting yesterday and the of lawmakers and there's no I'll anymore that from both sides are getting together on this. And tried to show unity and with us this morning Karen Travers tells all about and boarding. Yes and at least right now that's what everybody is saying you know this call for unity adds to push aside. The heated political rhetoric that we've heard so much of recently. And it calls for bipartisanship then that's great in and we certainly saw yesterday members of congress are really shaken up still about tennis and the recognition that. It was a congressional Republican practice but he could've been anybody it could have been any scene where. Members of congress were gathered together so there's certainly a big concern. About what had happened and how this. Needs to be dealt with going forward tonight that game is gonna take place the congressional baseball team is still on for tonight at Nationals Park and they should be pretty emotional moment but perhaps cathartic for everybody after a really tense day yesterday Karen this is probably the first game they've ever done rather grip. They'll really get some national average. Absolutely says the fun of that has been happening for a hundred years but certainly a huge spotlight this week and this is this is an effort to they sneak the raise a lot of money for charity don't. They really do their three charities that are already getting the funding from tonight's whatever was raised the Boys and Girls Club and to local DC charities. And now they've added a police law enforcement fun to that certainly a lot of compliments yesterday. And the huge expressions of gratitude toward the capitol police who jumped in engaged the suspect and ultimately were injured themselves. The you know Leah and you've been around long enough to know that these politicians there in their people and there. And Lotta times able public purse Sauna and a private precisely say things in public that seem real SE. Then their go to that same person say hey let's go play golf and it's kind of the way it is it. Yeah and I think. That's certainly how it's how it's been firm many decades here in Washington you know politics is politics that a lot of these people are very good friends. Off the senate and house floor but the sense that that's changed in recent years that. Members use to move to Washington before and Mary they lived in Virginia or Maryland your DC and their children knew each other. And now many members community and it's a little bit different and you know the ability to. Telecommute you know you have to be in Washington he could go back to your districts. In some ways you get a sense from talking with staff long pen staff that. They did tell is a little different you don't have that socializing like used to and maybe that's part of the nastiness that we've seen because it was don't know which apparently they did but tonight is to be great event. Were they can put partisan labels aside even though is Democrats playing Republicans and they both very much want to wind I think it's going to be quite amendments. Nice I'm sorry but I note and doubled. I just have a feeling it is to tone it a little bit of skepticism in your voice at this this. I don't let us down a series cynical and jaded and but you know we've seen these calls for unity before and they certainly last for a couple hours. Then the politics comes back are. Health thank you for your time this morning we appreciated ABC news correspondent Karen Travers live from the White House this morning. We've Steven Ted in the morning and a they're friends now they're showing unity right now would be nice if they kept it together and I don't know the general public that sometimes I don't think he understands that that relation to be used you know it's it's similar to what Ted. A to a nice to see you in covering courts. And court cases in that the lawyers. Would go into the coal you know going to in front of the jury and just go Ameren to identity chip. And you thinking they couldn't stand each other than they take a break and they're back here in the judge's chambers have a cup cough it. It's just it's at two different personas but. You know the rhetoric gets pretty harsh now and then and we certainly hope this. Is this is an isolated the last issue did the incident this won't happen again. A terrible transient and again saluting the capitol police my goodness. Couple of those officers. They went toe to toe this guy and took him out and and they were they were both voted. Yeah process if if they had not been there this would have been an eight terror massive massive tragedy. Well the City Council in that Jacksonville Florida was meeting Tuesday when a two year old pit bull mix named Elvis. Bit the ankle of a man who stepped on him. But makes it ought to use the reason the dollar was at the meeting today in the first place lawmakers were considering. A plan to promote pet adoption. Since shelter dogs were raring take me home vests. So Elvis approach won't get it taken home as you might expect city officials are not sure whether. That program will continue one no one else's fault a lot of got stepped on dogs react money it's that are gonna you know you staff dog's fault yeah that's the lamp. We have this story is going to just got to make well makes me cringe. It's about a 21 year old North Carolina man.
