Rep. Steve Scalise's condition is upgraded to serious from critical

Doctors Upgrade Rep. Scalise's Condition To 'Serious'

Press Secretary Sean Spicer told pool reporters that Trump and First Lady Melania Trump spoke with Scalise's doctors and the congressman's wife, Jennifer.

"Rep. Scalise is a proud LSU alumnus and great supporter of the university, and we are proud to help out even in this small way", said LSU President F. King Alexander.

Steve Scalise is "in some trouble", President Trump said Thursday, before adding he's hopeful the House Whip will make a full recovery.

She said Republican vitriol and caricatures of her have resulted in "calls to my home constantly, threats in front of my family, really predicated on their comments and their paid ads".

MedStar officials reported Wednesday night that the shot that struck Scalise in the left hip "travelled across his pelvis, fracturing bones, injuring internal organs and causing severe bleeding".

"It's been much more hard than people even thought at the time", Trump said, ostensibly referring to reports that Scalise's condition may have deteriorated.

Mr Scalise was among five people wounded in the shooting.

The FBI says the shooter, 66-year-old James Hodgkinson, was killed by police.

Authorities also were going over a mobile phone, computer and camera taken from Hodgkinson's white van, which was parked near the ballfield.

Republicans and Democrats fight for bragging rights Thursday in the annual Congressional Baseball Game as one unit - Team Scalise. "We will play for those affected by these despicable and cowardly actions, to support local charities. and to remind the American people that this violence will not define or divide us".

"The left-wing gunman whose rampage on a Virginia baseball diamond Wednesday left a congressman in critical condition and three others shot appears to have been driven by political rage critics fear is only increasing".

Pence had visited the hospital where Scalise is being treated earlier in the day.

"He underwent immediate surgery, and an additional procedure to stop bleeding".

"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. Rep. Martha McSally, R-Arizona, said the game will still go on as scheduled. They are going to all wear LSU hats in honor of Steve and I think that's a wonderful thing.

Members of both parties said they needed to soften rhetorical attacks, if only to set a better example for a public that seems increasingly divided into hostile political camps. She noted that she has received numerous threats herself over the years, and is now the target of millions of dollars in negative ads in a House district in Georgia where a hard-fought special election will take place next week.

AMY GOODMAN: We go now directly to the Capitol, where we're joined by the longest-serving member of Congress, Detroit Congressmember John Conyers.

In a statement, Texas Rep. Roger Williams, one of the team's coaches, said one of his staff members, legislative correspondent Zack Barth, was shot during the incident and is receiving medical attention.
