Dems win with Scalise on minds of players

"And that can cause damage to these organs".

Scalise returned to surgery Thursday morning. "It's about Republicans and Democrats".

President Trump delivered a videotaped statement, saying, "we will not be intimidated. the game will go on". Many on the Republican side were fresh from the horror of the ballfield shooting rampage a day earlier. Democrats won in an 11-2 blowout.

Family members of Matt Mika say the MI native was shot multiple times in his chest and arm, and he remains in the intensive care unit in critical condition at George Washington University Hospital.

However, a congressional aide-turned-lobbyist, Matt Mika, was shot multiple times and critically injured, and he remained in hospital.

On Wednesday morning, a gunman ambushed the field where the Republican team was practicing in Alexandria, Virginia.

Capitol Police, who provided security for the practice, killed the shooter, identified by authorities as James Hodgkinson, 66, from Belleville, Ill.

For some attendees, however, even this ball game was a work event.

Bailey received a hero's welcome from a record crowd of almost 25,000 at Thursday's game when he threw out the first pitch, and Barth also showed up for the game, walking with crutches.

Bailey gave a good-natured shrug as the stadium applauded.

Trump ally Rep. Chris Collins, R-N.Y., who has a permit to carry a gun, vowed to keep his weapon close: "On a rare occasion I'd have my gun in the glove box or something, but it's going to be in my pocket from this day forward", Collins told a Buffalo ABC affiliate.

GOP Representative Steven Scalise was one of the people shot.

Scalise remains in critical condition as his teammates honor him at the game at Nationals Park.

Trump wasn't able to attend the event in person due to security protocols. Steve is our friend.

LLC Has $3.68 Million Position in Coca-Cola Company (The) (KO)
The Average Volume of the company is 11.77 Million, while the Volume of the company in the last trading session was 9.52 Billion. Aristotle Capital Management LLC increased its stake in shares of Coca-Cola Company (The) by 17,376.6% in the fourth quarter.

The annual charity game brings Republicans and Democrats to the field in a friendly rivalry.

In a statement, the hospital said Mr Scalise had "sustained a single rifle shot to the left hip".

It also said that the Nationals, the major league team that plays at the park, has released additional seating for Thursday night's game.

The wife of the gunman who wounded a Republican congressman and several others says her husband went to Washington because he wanted to work with people on changing tax brackets.

Hodgkinson has been in the area since March, living out of his van, said local FBI Special Agent In Charge Tim Slater.

"Look, I signed up for this but my 3-year-old didn't and our families didn't", Richmond added.

The game will now benefit the US Capitol Police Memorial Fund after two officers injured protecting members of Congress Wednesday, in addition to other charities.

The arrest was first reported by CNN.

"How dare they say such a thing".

Ticket sales picked up after Wednesday's shooting, eventually setting an attendance record, the organizers said, as attendees such as Alexander Hilten, 16, of Arlington, Virginia, made a decision to come to the game for the first time.

It emerged Hodgkinson had a social media page filled with criticism of Republicans and the Trump administration.

The Capitol Police were at the ballfield in Virginia because Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., is the majority whip and member of the leadership.

But after Wednesday's shooting of Republican Rep. Steve Scalise and several others, they did not immediately land on a new strategy to challenge Trump and the Republican-led Congress.
