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

The rifle blast to Scalise's left hip, as he stood near second base, caused "substantial damage" to bones, internal organs and blood vessels.

Sava said that after being released from the hospital, Scalise "will require a period of healing and rehabilitation".

Trump added that Scalise is "having a hard time, far worse than anybody thought" following the shooting Wednesday. "At the request of the family, we will continue to provide periodic updates", the statement said. He said Republicans were on the field, shortly before the gunman began shooting at them.

The California Democrat notes that she herself is now featured in millions of dollars of attack ads running in a Georgia House district where there's a hard-fought special election next week.

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

Pelosi also notes that President Donald Trump occasionally used violent language on the campaign trail.

"He was in critical condition with an imminent risk of death", Dr. Jack Sava said Friday, adding that doctors have been encouraged by his progress. He has been sedated, but has been brought out of sedation periodically and been able to recognize and communicate with his family, Sava said. He has undergone additional surgery and doctors expect a full recovery. "This is clearly a deranged individual", Republican Rep.

Scalise was conscious, thirsty and being "as fearless as he could possibly be", said Wenstrup.

The Congressional Baseball Game, an annual tradition, went on as planned Thursday. He says, "They ran right into the fire" and saved a lot of lives.

Five others were injured in the attack.

"He is grateful for the fearless actions of U.S. Capitol Police, first responders, and colleagues, ' they explained".

Scalise was the most seriously injured of the four people Hodgkinson shot Wednesday morning.

Steve Scalise, one of the most influential men in congress, faces a long road to recovery.

I would also like to personally thank all of the first responders who bravely assisted at the scene, as well as the entire staff of MedStar Washington Hospital Center for their continued excellent care.

Scalise, 51, and three others were wounded when a man identified as James Hodgkinson, 66, from the St Louis suburb of Belleville, Illinois opened fire on the Republican lawmakers. He sustained minor injuries to one of his wrists, elbows and lower back in the process.

After the hospital visit, Pence headed to Miami for a conference on Central America and meetings with the leaders of El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala.

Despite the bipartisan motivation behind the game, especially this year, partisanship was hardly abandoned as Democrats and Republicans faced off, each side seriously itching for a win.

A day after he was shot in the hip by a lone gunman who fired into a crowd of Republican law... Scalise also had to have an operation to fix a bone in his foot.

"Both were purchased by the shooter from federal firearms licensees", Capitol Police said in a statement.
