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

Rep. Scalise was struck in the hip by a single rifle shot that caused bone fractures and internal organ bleeding. However, it is not clear if he will have a second surgery.

"He entered the room, spoke with Scalise's family, and sat by his bedside with Mrs. Trump", White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer told reporters.

MedSTAR hospital has not issued an update on Scalise's condition last night when they said he was in critical but stable condition.

Close friends say they are confident Scalise will pull through.

"I think anybody that ever played baseball, the dream was to play in a major league stadium", Richmond said previous year.

The first lady offered Scalise's family a bouquet of white flowers.

Scalise's detail included two members of the Capitol Police who helped bring down the gunman, even though one was shot. "He's in some trouble". "It's unlikely we will overcome our differences on access to guns for deranged people, but it would be good if we could".

The others shot and wounded were a congressional aide, a lobbyist for Tyson Foods, and a US Capitol Police officer.

"Had they not been there, it would have been a massacre", Paul said, praising Capitol police. Rep. Mo Brooks, an Alabama Republican, said his colleague "crawled into the outfield, leaving a trail of blood". Some 30 spectators watched the proceedings from the visitors' galleries.

Congressman Cedric Richmond, a Democrat from Louisiana and the team's star pitcher, visited Scalise twice on Wednesday and will do so again before taking the mound on Thursday. U.S. Capitol Police also stepped up their presence around the Capitol.

"It's about Republicans and Democrats". This year's baseball game, played at Nationals Park in Southeast Washington, looks to be a place where members can show it.

Representative Brad Wenstrup held the same opinion about the significance of Scalise's presence at the event on Wednesday.

The gunman was later identified as James Hodgkinson, a 66-year-old IL resident.
