Congressman Steve Scalise has undergone another surgery as he recovered from Wednesday's shooting in Alexandria, Virginia. Capitol Police said they had "no evidence to suggest that the purchases were not lawful".

As for Scalise, he's still in critical condition, but he's improving. The shooter was an IL man, James Hodgkinson, who had lashed out against President Donald Trump and Republicans over social media.

The Capitol Police Memorial Fund was added to the list of charities that will receive money raised by the game in honor of two members of Scalise's security detail who were at the Wednesday practice session and returned fire.

Griner and Bailey have been hailed as heroes after taking down the shooter.

"This is what I want to say: that we are Americans first, regardless of party", Sen.

As the House returned to business, lawmakers sought some semblance of normalcy even as they offered prayers for the wounded and echoed the president in pledges of unity. After they both were elected to Congress, they formed a close bond - and friendly rivalry - on the baseball diamond, playing for opposing teams at the annual charity game. Sanders said he denounced the violence "in the strongest possible terms".

Before a record crowd of 24,959, Republicans jumped off to a 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning.

Asked about carrying a gun, Rep. Roger Williams, R-Texas, said: "Sure, I mean I'm from Texas". The gunman died after being wounded in a gunfight with police. A former congressional aide was hospitalized.

On that day, a man later identified as the attacker approached Rep. Jeff Duncan of SC in the parking lot of the Alexandria, Virginia, ballfield, asking him, "Excuse me, sir, who's practicing today, Democrats or Republicans?" as Duncan recalls the encounter. But at a news conference, Pelosi bristled at comments made by a few Republicans and conservative activists who blamed heated Democratic rhetoric for the incident.


Although the weather in Washington looks headed toward a near-flawless summer night, an obvious and immovable shadow is being cast over Thursday night's Congressional Baseball Game - a tradition that began more than a century ago.

James Hodgkinson protests outside the United States Post Office in Downtown Belleville, Illinois, April 17, 2012. According to Hodgkinson's social-media history and other reports, he expressed broad dissent against Trump and Republican policies.

Today, Richmond is leading the fight for better security protection for lawmakers after a gunman tried to end Scalise's life on a suburban baseball field on Wednesday. Rep. Mo Brooks, an Alabama Republican, said his colleague "crawled into the outfield, leaving a trail of blood".

"I hope that we on Capitol Hill can discuss policy without denigrating those on the other side personally", Lance said. Jeff Flake of Arizona, who was at the practice.

On the phone, he assured his wife that he was all right, but told her that several shots had been fired and his teammates were injured. "I think Dems will win the baseball game, but I think everyone wins tonight".

Rep. Jeff Duncan of SC said he had just left the practice and encountered the apparent gunman in the parking lot before the shooting.

In a year that has been steeped with political controversy and heated debate, Connecticut's lawmakers agree yesterday's attack takes the differences in opinion too far. The man thanked him. The congressman then served in Louisiana's state legislature for 12 years before joining Congress.

He was shot multiple times, including at least once in the chest.
