In El Paso, an address was given at the city's baseball field by Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke — who paused his 2020 campaign to return to his hometown after the shooting that killed 20 people on Saturday morning. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports it was 1 of several well-attended vigils in the city.
In Dayton, the names of the 9 people killed in the attack early Sunday were repeated. Some in the crowd shouted "Do something!" as Gov. Mike DeWine (R) spoke, the Dayton Daily News reports. Mayor Nan Whaley, a Democrat, said there'd be plenty of time to focus on policy issues as she urged people to focus on honoring the victims, per AP.
