Scalise upgraded to 'serious' condition, able to speak to family

Scalise upgraded to 'serious' condition, able to speak to family

Check out a live stream of the game, held at Washington Nationals Park, in the embedded video below, courtesy of C-SPAN. After accepting it gracefully, Barton cracked, "Next year we won't be so nice". "ONE FAMILY", proclaimed a sign in the crowd.

President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump visited the hospital where Scalise was being treated Wednesday evening. "The game will go on".

We're going to play our hardest to win. Because Scalise is a member of House leadership, Capitol Police were present at the field. Hodgkinson died after being shot by police.

Rep. Jeff Duncan of SC said he had just left the practice and encountered the apparent gunman in the parking lot before the shooting. He said Republicans were on the field, shortly before the gunman began shooting at them.

Scalise remains in critical condition at a hospital near the Capitol and has undergone multiple surgeries.

"I think that the president contributed to this significantly", said Rep. James Clyburn of SC, the No. 3 House Democrat. "That was humbling in a way". He's had a second surgery and will be in the hospital a while.

Before the shooting, Rep. Cedric Richmond, D-La., said he had asked Ryan about increasing budgets for members' offices so they can pay for more security. He wore a purple boot. Congressional staffer Zack Barth was shot in the left calf.

Cramer's comments echoed others by House members of both parties Thursday. It is a rare and genuine opportunity for Democrats and Republicans to put their divisions aside and show those gathered in the stadium and watching across the United States, that they are not just politicians - they are people and players. Democrats opened an 11-2 lead in the fifth inning on the strength of his pitching, and by then he had scored every time he was up. "It's about Republicans and Democrats".

A congressional aide, a lobbyist and one police officer were also shot before police killed the gunman. Still, the divide was good-natured, for once. "That probably says something about us that's not so admirable", said Murphy. The doctor described how a bullet from an assault rifle entered Scalise's hip and traversed his pelvis, shattering blood vessels, bones and internal organs along the way.

The game originated in 1909 and is "the only annual partisan event beloved by all and enjoyed by thousands", according to the Congressional Baseball Game's website.

To put the "20,000" figure into context, that number is higher than the average ticket sales of a Tampa Bay Rays or Oakland Athletics home game, and is about the same as a Miami Marlins game.

Scalise's wife, Jennifer, issued a statement saying she was thankful for the "incredible amount of prayers and warm wishes" the family has received since the shooting. "And throughout the whole game, we will all be Team Scalise", Pelosi said.
