Rep. Scalise improving after baseball field shooting

"Richmond, in the course of being the chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus and Scalise in terms of being the House Majority Whip, can put together coalitions of Democratic and Republican congressman to pass bills and amendments that favor Louisiana, and they've done that since they've been up there", DuBos said.

"The [bullet] fragmented and did substantial damage to bones, internal organs, and blood vessels".

Trump, who visited Scalise at the hospital on Wednesday, said the congressman was "in some trouble but he's going to be okay, we hope".

The doctors said that while Scalise remains in critical condition, they "are encouraged by improvement in his condition".

The annual friendly bipartisan game takes place in an effort to raise money for charity, said the New York Times.

Doctors have been able to control Scalise's internal bleeding and his vital signs have stabilized, Sava said.

While the game provides some relief and bipartisanship in a town dominated by faction and division, the other more important aspect of the game has to do with how it benefits various charities.

The FBI recovered a cellphone, computer and camera from Hodgkinson's van and was examining them for evidence, the statement said. He died after officers in Scalise's security detail fired back at him. Over social media he had lashed out at Trump and the GOP.

"I hope he's in good enough shape to watch, because he'll certainly feel good about what he sees", Flake said.

Republicans and Democrats fight for bragging rights Thursday in the annual Congressional Baseball game as one unit - Team Scalise. The congressman underwent another surgery Saturday, and the hospital said he was more responsive and speaking with family.

"I know Steve and I know that he is a fighter", Rep. Cedric Richmond said, "And whether that fight is for two weeks, two months, two years, we know he will fight all the way to the end".

Also suffering relatively minor injuries were two Capitol Police officers, David Bailey and Crystal Griner, and House GOP aide Zack Barth.

Matt Mika, a lobbyist for Tyson Foods, was shot multiple times in his chest and suffered massive trauma.

Following a day that saw most congressional business canceled, the House approved legislation offering health insurance tax credits to some veterans while committees pondered subjects from federal land management to cybersecurity. "But you have long since earned my respect, and you deserve to be heard, and you are an honorable individual". "At the request of the family, we will continue to provide periodic updates".

Underscoring the day's mood, the Rev. Patrick Conroy, the House chaplain, opened the day by seeking divine forgiveness "when we seem to forget that words matter and can become seeds that will bring bitter harvest".

"They tease each other about being separated at birth".

Rep. Steve King of Iowa said over Twitter, "The center of America is disappearing, and the violence is incited by the leading cultural voices of the Left".

"While the president would like to attend the game and show his support for all of these courageous public servants, he has been advised that there is not enough time to follow Secret Service protocols", Trump spokesman Sean Spicer said Wednesday night.

Many lawmakers in both parties called for unity after the shooting.
