House Majority Leader and MLK Day denier Steve Scalise remains in critical condition at MedStar Washington Hospital Center but is expected to recover and regain the ability to walk and run, MedStar's Dr. Jack Sava said Friday. The annual GOP-Democrats baseball game raises money for charity.

The bullet reportedly pierced his hip during baseball practice may have done a lot of damage and the hospital said he's had to have a number of transfusions.

Investigators say they still do not know if the shooter James T. Hodgkinson had an attack plan.

Hodgkinson, who had a history of posting angry messages against Trump and other Republicans on social media, died after being wounded by police. Authorities also were going over a cellphone, computer and camera taken from Hodgkinson's white van, which was parked near the ballfield.

"It's been much more hard than people even thought at the time", Trump said of the treatment of Scalise, the No. 3 GOP leader, who is in critical condition and underwent a third surgery at the MedStar Washington Hospital Center. The hospital said Scalise will undergo additional operations and "will be in the hospital for some time".

He focused on the character of those who are dealing with the aftermath of the attack.

"I want to take a moment to send our thoughts, love, and prayers to Congressman Steve Scalise and his entire family", he said.

"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 playing in Thursday night's charity baseball game wore some LSU gear in honor of Congressman Steve Scalise. Richmond, who plays for the Democratic team, said he had visited the hospital multiple times. The bullet that struck Scalise tore through his pelvis, fracturing bones, injuring internal organs and causing severe bleeding, the hospital said. He is the House's No. 3 GOP leader. "And it was quite a day, and our police officers were incredible, weren't they?"

WASHINGTON (AP) - Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise was upgraded from "critical" to "serious condition" Saturday and continued to show signs of improvement after he was wounded in a shooting at a Republican baseball practice outside Washington.

Special agent David Bailey, who was hit in the ankle as he charged the suspect, threw the ceremonial first pitch.

In 79 contests listed on the game's website, the parties share an even record of 39 wins, 39 losses and one tie, with Democrats benefiting from wins in seven straight games from 2009-2015.

"There is so much you do that I disagree with", House Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas, a staunch conservative, told his panel's top Democrat, unwavering liberal Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif. "We love you." Lewis led a House floor Democratic sit-in past year when Republicans refused to consider gun control legislation.

Hodgkinson also contacted the office of Rep. Mike Bost, R-Ill., at least 10 times over the past year, a Bost spokesman has said, characterizing the emails and phone calls as negative but not threatening.

Some Republican lawmakers blamed the shooting on vitriolic political rhetoric, particularly rising from the left in the era of Trump.

The shooting prompted talk of improving security for lawmakers, most of whom are unaccompanied by officers in their normal day-to-day pursuits.
