CNN's Jake Tapper lists several Republican lawmakers who declined to appear for interviews on Sunday's edition of "State of the Union" in the wake of two mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, Texas.
"We should note that we invited the Republican governor, Lt. Governor, and two senators representing Texas to join us this morning -- they all declined. The Republican governor of Ohio also declined. We also asked the White House to provide someone to discuss these shootings -- that request too was declined," Tapper said.
