The officials said Friday that the significance of the list was not known. This person was not authorised to speak publicly about the case and spoke on condition of anonymity.

"This is just a continued reminder of how close we are and how close we have to continue to be, because at the end of the day there are 4 million people relying on us to get stuff done", said Louisiana Congressman Cedric Richmond.

The Louisiana Republican was shot in the hip Wednesday morning in the baseball practice shooting by an IL man with grudges against President Donald Trump and the GOP.

Aides to Ryan, R-Wis., confirmed the speaker had visited Scalise at the hospital but declined to provide details of the encounter. The first said that he "remains in critical condition, but has improved in the last 24 hours".

Sava declined to put a timeline on when that would happen or when Scalise, 51, would be able to leave the hospital.

Scalise was shot in the hip, with the bullet tearing through his pelvis and injuring internal organs. He will remain in the intensive care unit through at least the weekend, they said.

Said that when Scalise first arrived at the hospital, he was in "critical condition, with an imminent risk of death".

Scalise has undergone multiple surgeries and will need more.

Rep. Scalise was shot during baseball practice with the GOP team early Wednesday morning after a man approached the field and opened fire. The shooter was an IL man, James Hodgkinson, who had lashed out against President Donald Trump and Republicans over social media.

The motive for the shooting remained unclear but authorities were zeroing in on the life of James T. Hodgkinson, a 66-year-old man from IL, in the months and weeks before Wednesday morning's shooting.

She says she's grateful to President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and all of Scalise's Capitol Hill colleagues "who have reached out to us during this most challenging time". "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".

Scalise was an enthusiastic participant in the ballgame - in 2015 he posted pictures from the many times he played in the competition against the Democrats' team.

His family said they appreciate the support they've received from lawmakers and the president, and are thankful for the bravery of the special agents. The players came together to support him.

"I did tell Joe that I love him before the game and I love him after the game".

The crowd started clapping and chanting United States of America after the first pitch was thrown by injured Capitol Police Officer David Bailey, one of the two officers on the congressman's security detail who've been credited with saving his life and potentially many others.
