Scalise, who remains in critical condition but has improved, was shot in the left hip and suffered damage to internal organs.

Scalise underwent his third operation Thursday morning and remained in critical condition at MedStar Washington Hospital Center. Democrats gave the trophy to the Republicans, so it could be placedin Rep. Scalise's office as he recovers in the hospital. He underwent immediate surgery, and an additional procedure to stop bleeding.

Scalise is sedated, but the husband and father of two has been able to respond to his doctors and family. Hundreds of bullet fragments remain in his body.

Sava said that after being released from the hospital, Scalise "will require a period of healing and rehabilitation".

Un témoignage accablant pour Bayrou — Assistants parlementaires MoDem
Restait le ministre de la justice , l'homme de la moralisation, le grand inquisiteur auto proclamé de la république. L'écho donné, par les réseaux sociaux et les médias, à cette affaire comme à tant d'autres, l'inquiète.

Mark Sanford, R, SC said, "I think as much as anything, today is an act of solidarity of Republicans and Democrats coming together to say what happened yesterday is not going to cancel this game".

"He was in critical condition with an imminent risk of death", Sava said.

Democrat Cedric Richmond, a fellow Louisiana congressman, said as many others did that Scalise is a fighter. Then, Trump said "Let's play ball!" Hodgkinson was shot by police and later died of his injuries. "And because of him and the tremendous pain and suffering he's now enduring - and he's having a hard time, far worse than anybody thought - our country will perhaps become closer, more unified - so important".

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., paid a visit to his injured colleague at the hospital Friday. 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.

Lobbyist Matt Mika was shot multiple times and remains hospitalized.
