At 7:01 p.m., in the midst of a series of House votes, South Carolina Republican Mark Sanford led his colleagues in observing a moment of silence for the nine victims killed June 17 in the Charleston church massacre.  

Sanford, a former governor of the state, was joined on the floor by fellow South Carolina Republicans Tim Scott and Lindsey Graham, who slipped over from the Senate after business had adjourned for the day.
