  • House Majority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise on Capitol Hill in 2015

U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise has regained consciousness and spoke with his wife Saturday morning, sources tell the New Orleans Advocate. Over the years, Democrats have won 40 games; Republicans have won 39.

Democrats bounced back from a loss past year, when the game was played the night after they held an all-night session on the House floor to protest Republican inaction on gun legislation.

House Speaker Paul Ryan has paid a visit to wounded Majority Whip Steve Scalise at the hospital.

The shooting occurred at a popular park and baseball complex in Alexandria, Virginia, across the Potomac River from Washington, where Republican lawmakers and others were gathered for a morning practice about 7 a.m.

Scalise is being treated in the hospital's intensive care unit.

Scalise has undergone multiple surgeries and will need more.

"When tragedy strikes we are family", said Rep. Nanette Barragan of California, who plays on the Democratic baseball team and invited all to attend the congressional charity baseball game Thursday night at Nationals Park. He's a great ballplayer, and this is this very game that sparked a friendship with his home-state colleague Steve Scalise. Infection also is a risk, especially if the intestines were perforated.

On Thursday night Scalise was honored at the annual congressional baseball game at Nationals Stadium, where a record crowd showed up. In the immediate aftermath Wednesday the extent of his injuries was not widely known.

The president said, "By playing tonight we are showing the world that we will not be intimidated by threats, acts of violence or assaults on our democracy".

Damage from a bullet occurs when it's traveling. "All you're doing is stirring up more trouble" by making another incision larger than the fragment to try to get it out, explained Dr. Deborah Stein, trauma chief at the University of Maryland's Shock Trauma Center.

Once recovered, Scalise will be able to walk and hopefully run, the doctor said. "After he leaves the hospital he will require a period of healing and of rehabilitation".

"I think these events humanize the other side, whatever the other side means to you", she said.

The congressman's risk of death was now substantially lower, because doctors have controlled the bleeding, and his vital signs have stabilised.

Former New York Yankees manager Joe Torre presented the game ball to Capitol Police special agent David Bailey, who came out on the field on crutches after being injured in Wednesday's shooting, to throw out the first pitch to huge applause.

The FBI says the shooter, 66-year-old James Hodgkinson, was killed by police.

"He's going to be OK, we hope", President Trump said.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: It's been much more hard than people even thought at the time.

"So we all owe Steve a big, big thank you", Trump added.

House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said Thursday she favors more money for the U.S. Capitol Police, which is seeking an 8 percent increase to almost $427 million for next year. The offices of both senators - Dick Durbin and Tammy Duckworth - turned over the emails to Capitol Police and declined to offer specifics about their content.

But Flake said the final score wasn't likely to matter this year. He remains in critical condition, but has improved in the last 24 hours.
