Scalise upgraded to serious condition after more surgery

Spicer said Trump would not attend Thursday's congressional baseball game, which Scalise and others had been practicing for when he was shot, out of security and logistical concerns.

USA congressman and senior Republican Steve Scalise has been upgraded from "critical" to "serious condition" and continues to show signs of improvement after being shot while he practised for a charity baseball game.

The 51-year-old Republican congressman from Louisiana underwent another surgery on Saturday, the hospital treating him said, which was at least his third operation since being transported to the facility.

Steve Scalise's condition has been upgraded from "critical" to "serious" as he is showing signs of improvement, according to the hospital where he is being treated for a gunshot in the hip.

On Sunday, he added Erin Hills in Wisconsin to the list - the stop that made all those frequent flier miles worth it. Matsuyama's T-2 finish is his best result in a major and his sixth top-10 finish in a major since the 2013 U.S.

The hospital said Saturday Scalise is more responsive and speaking with his loved ones.

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

A lobbyist shot multiple times and critically injured also remains hospitalized.

Scalise continues to show signs of improvement after he was wounded in a shooting at a Republican baseball practice outside Washington.

Republicans and Democrats are fighting for bragging rights in their annual Congressional Baseball game, and doing so as one unit - Team Scalise.

The bullet hit Scalise in the left hip, then traveled to the other hip.

Investigators studying Wednesday's attack at a suburban Virginia park said Thursday that shooter James Hodgkinson had obtained his rifle and handgun from licensed firearms dealers.
