Who was and who was not on board the Am Track train?

This is what we know so far.  Jeff Denham (CA-R), Pete Sessions (TX-R) and Paul Ryan (WI-R) were on board. And are all okay. Family and spouses who were on their way to a West Virginia weekend retreat were on board. We do have it confirmed that Mitch McConnell (KY-R) and Steve Scalise (LA-R) were NOT on the train. They opted to drive. And Rand Paul was in an interview at Fox News.

In conclusion, Sarah Sanders made a statement from the White House as reported by Fox News.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone who has been affected by this incident.”

Please take a moment to extend your thoughts and prayers and contact your Representatives to make sure they are okay!
