Rep. Angie Craig (D-Minn.) was attacked Thursday morning in Washington, D.C., while she was riding the elevator in her apartment building.

The 50-year-old lawmaker "suffered bruising, but is otherwise physically okay," Nick Coe, her chief of staff, said in a statement. "Rep. Craig is grateful to the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department for their quick response and asks for privacy at this time. There is no evidence that the incident was politically motivated."
