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

He sat next to Scalise's bed and spoke with the congressman's family, according to White House press secretary Sean Spicer.

Scalise "continues his very courageous fight ... but it's been much more hard than people even thought at the time". "He's in some trouble".

In addition to Scalise, a police officer, a congressional aide and a lobbyist were shot on Wednesday morning when a man opened fire as the Republican lawmakers practiced for the game in the Washington suburb of Alexandria, Virginia.

Hodgkinson also wrote several letters to his local newspaper railing against Republicans for what he says were policies that too often favored the rich. The bullet traveled across his pelvis, fracturing bones, injuring internal organs, and causing severe bleeding. Mika was "shot multiple times in his chest and arm and suffered massive trauma" and now "requires assistance to breathe and will need additional surgeries".

Mr Scalise was among five people wounded in the shooting.

Griner, David Bailey, and Henry Cabrera, all Capitol Police special agents, "immediately returned fire" after James T. Hodgkinson began shooting at congressmen gathered for the practice at a park in Alexandria, Va., CBS News reports.

The gunman had a rifle and "a lot of ammo", said Sen. The FBI is processing a cell phone, a computer and a camera found in the van.

Over the years the Congressional Baseball Game has been a fundraiser for charities including The Washington Literacy Center, The Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Washington and The Washington Nationals Dream Foundation.

House Speaker Paul Ryan and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told CNN's Jake Tapper on "Erin Burnett OutFront" that despite party affiliation they were both on "Team Scalise" on Thursday.

Vice President Mike Pence paid a visit Thursday morning to Scalise, his former colleague when he served in the House.

Sources familiar with Scalise's condition said the third surgery is routine for gunshot victims.

"I'm prayerful he will pull through, and I hope he does", Democrat Cedric Richmond said.

"We started giving him the liquids, I put pressure on his wound in his hip", Brooks said. "He's always fighting, that's why this is right up his ally".

"We wouldn't miss it", she told Fox News.

On Twitter, Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, blamed the shooting on "the leading cultural voices of the Left", but such political rhetoric was mostly drowned out by calls for unity and prayer. Davis said he then ran into the apartment of a "good Samaritan" named Ben Childers, where he first placed a call to emergency services and then called the rest of his family.

Democratic Rep. Ruben J. Kihuen (Nevada) tweeted about the prayer, and many other Democrats who had also been at the practice tweeted their thoughts, reported The Blaze. "It's about Republicans and Democrats". I could not be more grateful that Capitol Police were there at the time to prevent this attack from being any worse than it was.
