US Rep. Scalise's condition upgraded to 'serious' after shooting

"We are especially appreciative of the strong outpouring of love and support from our neighbors, friends, from across Louisiana and across the country, as well as President [Donald] Trump, Vice President [Mike] Pence and all of Steve's colleagues who have reached out during this challenging time", the statement said.

Fox News has confirmed that the gunman who opened fire on Republican congressmen at an Alexandria, Va., baseball field on Wednesday had a list of at least six GOP lawmakers' names at the time of the shooting.

Republican team manager Joe Barton congratulated their Democratic counterparts as he received the trophy from Democrat manager Mike Doyle. "ONE FAMILY", proclaimed a sign in the crowd. "He remains in critical condition, but has improved in the last 24 hours".

Democrats say that any discussion about incivility starts with President Trump, who routinely hurled insults during the 2016 campaign and considered paying the legal fees of a supporter accused of punching a protester at a rally. "The game will go on".

"The security detail saved a lot of lives", he said. "Crystal and David have been family to us for years, and we ask that you continue to pray for their full recovery". But he said it is still baseball, and he'd cheer more loudly for the Republican team, adding: "It's still good to have bragging rights".

Scalise returned to surgery Thursday morning. "We'd all do well to temper things a little bit", said Costello. "That was humbling in a way".

Although Scalise was able to talk on the ballfield, by the time he was transported by helicopter to the hospital, he was in shock. He wore a purple boot. The assailant, who had nursed grievances against President Donald Trump and the GOP, fought a gun battle with police before he, too, was shot and later died.

Cramer's comments echoed others by House members of both parties Thursday. Sava said Scalise "clearly knows" his family is there and "appreciates" their presence. That lasted until the end of the seven-inning game. Baseball cards handed out as fans entered the park identified the players' partisan voting percentages.

"I was surprised by some of the reports also", Sava said.

The encouraging words came with the knowledge that the outcome could have been very different.

The Congressional Baseball Game for Charity dates back to 1909, and became popular enough by 1928 to be broadcast on the radio, according to a history of the game listed on a dedicated website.

The shooter was killed by police officers whose work won praise from Trump in his remarks. The game took place Thursday night as planned at Nationals Park.

Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred offered his thoughts and prayers after the shooting and endorsed the decision to play ball.

For their part, some Republicans seem taken aback by an intensity on the left that threatens to overwhelm them in the 2018 midterm elections.
