Pence visits Scalise in hospital

Congressman Steve Scalise

The hospital said Saturday Scalise is more responsive and speaking with his loved ones. "The Scalise family greatly appreciates the outpouring of thoughts and prayers", the hospital wrote, "on behalf of the Scalise family".

Scalise, the number three Republican in the House of Representatives, arrived at the hospital in a critical state, facing "an imminent risk of death", according to Sava.

Scalise's surgeon says he can hope to make an "excellent recovery", despite being at risk of death when he arrived at the hospital.

The first procedure done on Scalise was to address the bleeding, and during that procedure he received "many units of transfused blood", he said.

At a press conference on Friday, the hospital treating the congressman said he has been sedated, but responded to family members. Hodgkinson of IL, died after being shot by Capitol Police officers.

The bullet entered Scalise's body in the area of the left hip, and then traveled across his pelvis, Sava said.

A playground near the baseball field is cordoned off with police tape as the investigation continue at the scene in Alexandria, Va., Thursday, June 15, 2017, the day after House Majority Whip Steve Scalise of La. was shot during during a congressional baseball practice.

President Donald Trump says GOP Congressman Steve Scalise "took a bullet for all of us".

Rep. Trent Franks told Kate Bolduan on "Erin Burnett OutFront" that he has also been contacted by Capitol Police. He was wounded when the attacker armed with a rifle and a handgun fired on Republican lawmakers who were preparing for Thursday's annual charity game against a team of Democrats.

She said Republican vitriol and caricatures of her had resulted in "calls to my home constantly, threats in front of my family, really predicated on their comments and their paid ads".

The shooter, James T. Hodgkinson, was killed by police Wednesday after firing dozens of bullets during the congressional practice session. He has undergone several surgeries and has more ahead.

Mika also remained hospitalized Saturday after undergoing an additional surgery.
