Frank Pratt, a Republican who represents Arizona in the House, was attacked by an unknown assailant - left unconscious, beaten, and bound, before his wife found him - at his swimming pool store on Christmas morning. The unidentified assailant stole Pratt's SUV and left the area, and Pratt is reportedly in stable condition. He is supposed to open the legislative term on January 11, but now he is unsure whether he will, his wife said. [CNN]
