Doctors: Scalise arrived at hospital in 'imminent risk of death'

"I think it's well worth it". "It's a really American thing to do, to just go ahead anyway". Doyle gave the winning trophy back to the Republicans to put in Scalise's office. But in honor of Scalise's alma mater, he word a Louisiana State University cap - as did many others.

The Republicans were on the field practicing the day before the charity game when James T. Hodgkinson opened fire and struck several members of Congress. The crowd chanted "USA!"

Several other people were also injured in Wednesday's shooting before Scalise's security detail and other police officers gunned down the assailant, who later died. The commander-in-chief said, "By playing tonight we are showing the world that we will not be intimidated by threats, acts of violence or assaults on our democracy".

It's a visible reminder of the attack that's bridged political parties, even as the game goes on. The shooter was identified as James T. Hodgkinson, a 66-year-old home inspector from IL.

The Nationals had to loan the Republican team catcher's gear because their equipment is still in evidence, Washington Post reporter Robert Costa tweeted.

We are especially appreciative of the strong outpouring of love and support from our neighbors, friends, from Louisiana and across the country, as well as from President Trump, Vice President Pence, and all of Steve's colleagues who have reached out to us during this most challenging time.

The annual friendly bipartisan game takes place in an effort to raise money for charity, said the New York Times.

Democrats and Republicans huddle for a prayer before the game.

To loud applause he threw the first pitch, which is a longstanding baseball ritual that usually falls to a dignitary or celebrity. "So we all owe Steve a big, big thank you". Ivanka Trump, Energy Secretary Rick Perry and Conway were among those on hand represent the administration, while all four congressional leaders, House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis.; Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.; House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.; and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., led the almost 25,000 in attendance (a record) in a "Play Ball!" chant. Because he is part of the Republican leadership, Scalise has protection from the US Capitol Police.

Earlier today, Trump spoke in Miami to announce the rollback of President Obama's relaxed trade and travel policies toward Cuba. The first time he told Trump was in his first meeting with the president before the inauguration on January 6.

Support for Scalise was everywhere.

"Scalise continues to show signs of improvement".

Congressional members shared the sentiment.

The person told The Associated Press on Saturday that investigators aren't sure of the significance of the names and don't know if it was a list of people he was targeting.

General admission tickets were priced at $10, while reserved tickets for the Republican or Democrat sides were priced at $15. "That's the source of unity and more than ever we must embrace it".

The two men from southeastern Pennsylvania snagged third-row seats near first base, where they reflected on the shock they felt when each of them learned of the shooting Wednesday morning - and ducked at least one high-velocity foul ball that whizzed over their heads.

After Thursday's result, the all-time record in the game is 39 wins each, for both Democrats and Republicans, with one tie.

Rep. Cedric Richmond, the Democrats' star player, said he planned to stop by the hospital to check on Scalise before heading to the stadium.
