Democrats win Baseball Game, hand trophy to Republicans in honor of Scalise

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise remained in critical condition Thursday evening after undergoing a second surgery to deal with internal injuries and a broken bone in his leg following the shootout at an Alexandria, Va., baseball field, the hospital said.

Scalise, 51, and four others were wounded when an IL man opened fire Wednesday morning on the team practice in Alexandria.

Scalise underwent his third operation Thursday morning and remained in critical condition at MedStar Washington Hospital Center.

"And let's keep the Warmbier family and the Scalise family and all of the victims of the congressional shooting in our hearts and prayers", Trump continued.

Dr. Sava said that Mr. Scalise sustained a single rifle wound that traveled across his pelvis and was in shock when he arrived at the hospital.

Scalise probably has hundreds of bullet fragments in his body, and doctors don't plan to remove them because usually there is more risk than benefit in doing so, Sava said.

"I would say that when he arrived, he was in critical condition with an imminent risk of death". Doctors said he was near death upon arrival at MedStar Washington Hospital Center. Congressional aide Zack Barth, Tysons Food lobbyist Matt Mika and Capitol Police Officer David Bailey were also shot in the attack, but have since been released from the hospital.

Hodgkinson was fatally shot during an exchange of gunfire with police during the rampage.

Democrats gave the trophy to the Republicans, so it could be placedin Rep. Scalise's office as he recovers in the hospital.

His family said they appreciate the support they've received from lawmakers and the president, and are thankful for the bravery of the special agents.

That would allow Macron to move fast with promised legislation, notably on changing labor laws to make hiring and firing easier. "We are the only force of resistance to the watering down of France, of its social model and its identity", she said defiantly.

President Trump delivered a videotaped statement, saying, "we will not be intimidated. the game will go on".

"The president says that because of the "tremendous pain and suffering he's now enduring. our country will perhaps become closer, more unified. So we all owe Steve a big, big thank you".

"Trump also adds, as he's said previously, that Scalise is "having a hard time, far worse than anybody thought" following the shooting Wednesday".

The man who shot House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and others at a congressional baseball practice earlier this week had with him a piece of paper with doodles and the names of three lawmakers, according to a person familiar with the case.

Calderon said: "I'm sure Cristiano won't leave Europe". "He loved the club, the fans, the city and I don't rule out a move back". United would not want to pay that for the 32-year-old but keeper David De Gea, 26, could be used as a bargaining tool.

Colleagues who visited Scalise, including House Speaker Paul Ryan, sounded generally upbeat, but spoke more in terms of hopes than the confident predictions of the immediate aftermath a day earlier. Scalise is a member of the team and had been fielding balls at second base in preparation for the game when he was shot.
