Steve Scalise fights for life after shooting

Imam Hailed As Hero For Protecting Finsbury Park Van Attacker

Democrats and Republicans from the Senate and the House of Representatives traded suits and ties for cleats and caps Thursday at Nationals Park, the home of the United States capital's team. And he said lawmakers needed to find more ways to get to know each other as people, not just political opponents.

She said they typically average about $15,000 in ticket sales.

Once a relatively cozy affair, played at a minor league ballpark in Maryland, the game has gone big time in recent years and has been played at Nationals Park, just a few blocks from the Capitol.

Capitol Police officer David Bailey, who chased down the gunman despite being wounded himself, hobbled out to the pitcher's mound on crutches to throw out the ceremonial first pitch of the game.

Bailey is a member of Congressman Steve Scalise's protective detail.

The shooting marks the first time a sitting member of Congress has been shot since Arizona Rep.

"They have an N.R.A. rating they want to keep", Cohen said.

Proceedings were canceled for the day in the House, and instead Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin and Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California issued their own calls for unity.

"The Congressional Baseball Game has never been about Republicans against Democrats", said Rep. Pete Aguilar, D-C.A., in an opinion piece he wrote for CNN.

"I feel a lot more confident and a lot more optimistic than I did two, three days ago", Sava said. "We don't need to be knee-jerk reactionaries". We're going to have to wait and see how it plays out in the budget fights later this year.

He was struck by the fact that the attacker was armed with a rifle while the police officers only had pistols. You know, this is an active and ongoing discussion that the Capitol Police are having with lawmakers about how they can feel safe when they're off campus, not in the Capitol and when they're back at home.

Keeping the game going has become an important statement for lawmakers - an emotional declaration that such attacks and threats of violence won't force them to hide or change their routines. He has reported them to Capitol police.

"Members who served in the past talk about how Congress used to be a gentler, kinder place", she said. "So we sent some stuff up there and hope Steve has a quick and full recovery".

"The Congressman will require additional operations, and will be in the hospital for some time." the Medstar Washington Hospital Center said in a statement, adding that Scalise has "improved in the last 24 hours". 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.

Currently, the office allowance can not be used for home security.

Some lawmakers are talking about carrying a gun with them, although weapons are prohibited in the Capitol and the District of Columbia has some of the toughest gun laws in the nation, with carrying a firearm generally prohibited.

"I would argue that the president is at least - is partially - again, not in any way totally but partially to blame for demons that have been unleashed", said South Carolina Rep. Mark Sanford in an interview on MSNBC.

Rep. Roger Williams, a Texas Republican whom Barth works for, was also hospitalized and released with an injury to his leg.
