House Majority Whip Steve Scalise speaks to reporters at the US Capitol, hours before an expected vote to repeal Obamacare in Washington, D.C., US on May 4, 2017. Scalise and the others had been at the GOP team's baseball practice in nearby Alexandria, Virginia, when they were shot.

Doctors say Republican Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana remains in critical condition at a Washington hospital but is improving.

"And let's keep the Warmbier family and the Scalise family and all of the victims of the congressional shooting in our hearts and prayers", Trump continued.

He was airlifted to MedStar Washington Hospital Center Wednesday and is in critical condition recovering from surgery.

Aides to Ryan, R-Wis., confirmed the speaker had visited Scalise at the hospital but declined to provide details of the encounter.

After giving up a run in the second, White Sox starter Mike Pelfrey settled down and went three innings without giving up a hit. Manager John Gibbons said that 24-year-old would have one more bullpen before heading down to the minors to continue his rehab.

Scalise was shot in the hip, with the bullet tearing through his pelvis and injuring internal organs. He has undergone additional surgery and doctors expect a full recovery.

Scalise had been fielding balls at second base when he was shot and then dragged himself away from the infield in a trail of blood. Infection also is a risk, especially if the intestines were perforated. U.S. Capitol Police officer David Bailey, who was wounded in the shooting while protecting members of Congress, threw the first pitch.

"I hope he's in good enough shape to watch, because he'll certainly feel good about what he sees", Flake said. Once it has lodged in bone or muscle, "it's not going to do anything". That's about twice much as the event raised past year.

Sava said that after being released from the hospital, Scalise "will require a period of healing and rehabilitation". "This type of stuff, the camaraderie, happens a lot more than people view, and it was a statement about political extremism on the other side", Rep. John Shimkus (R-Ill.) told TMN. "His risk of death right now is substantially lower than when he came in". The man calmly asked which party's lawmakers were practicing and Duncan told him they were the Republicans.

"In Washington we have our disagreements, but we all agree that we are here to serve this nation we love, and the people who call it home", President Trump said in a video address to the crowd.

The Democrats defeated the Republicans 11-2. "And we thank all the members of Alexandria Fire, Police and Rescue", Trump said.

The president paid a visit to Scalise on Wednesday night. Capitol Police said they had "no evidence to suggest that the purchases were not lawful".

Hodgkinson contacted both of his state's Democratic senators frequently, always through email links on their websites, spokesmen said Friday. Griner remains hospitalized at MedStar Hospital after getting shot in the ankle, and Sava described her in good condition.
