Scalise upgraded from 'critical' to 'serious' condition

Congressional Baseball Game breaks records for fundraising, ticket sales

Congressional Democrats beat their Republican counterparts in Washington's annual charity baseball game, an event marked by the shooting of Rep. "But as you all know, tonight's game has taken on a much deeper level of meaning, beyond anything that we would have thought".

"Just because I'm passionate, just because a Republican is passionate about the things they believe in, that's not license for somebody to go take a gun and shoot one of us", Murphy said. More than $1 million has been raised for Congressional Sports for Charity so far, the game's organizers announced. But in the future, they may rethink wanting armed guards when there is a large gathering of members of Congress in one spot.

Doctors at MedStar Washington Hospital, where Rep. Scalise is being treated, discussed his condition on Friday saying that they believed he would be in the hospital for a considerable amount of time, possibly weeks.

President Donald Trump says that wounded Congressman Steve Scalise's condition is more hard than people first realized.

The game began with an emotional kneel and prayer by Republicans, followed by another prayer that included both teams at the second base position, the spot where Scalise was shot. The Democratic side won in a blowout, but the game was played in Scalise's honor with lawmakers of both parties dressed in purple in recognition of Scalise's Louisiana State University affiliation.

Because Scalise is a member of House leadership, Capitol Police were present at the field.

The vicious and horrific attack we saw Wednesday in Alexandria at the Republican team's practice was nothing short of a direct assault on the institution we all serve and a deranged attempt to disrupt our democracy through violence. Hospital staff told CBN News he will likely undergo more surgeries.

Tonight's game comes at a time of escalating partisan rancor on Capitol Hill and throughout the nation. It's about Americans coming together to support a good cause.

Former Yankees manager Joe Torre walked toward the mound in what everyone suspected would be the ceremonial first pitch.

Trump called for unity in remarks at the White House on Wednesday, but Sanford and other Republican lawmakers also pointed to the president's own harsh rhetoric.

"Had Steve been sick, or exhausted or lazy and didn't go to practice, then you would have saw a full-fledged massacre", Richmond said.

Shooter James Hodgkinson of Belleville, Ill., was shot and died later Wednesday of his wounds in the hospital.

With a final score of 11-2, Democrats received the coveted trophy.
