Scalise dragged himself off the infield leaving a trail of blood as colleagues rushed to his assistance. "Our thoughts and prayers are with the members of Congress, their staffs, Capitol Police, first responders and all others affected". "But to have a full detail following 535 people around would obviously cost prohibitive", Grothman said.

She went on to use President Donald Trump's past statements as examples.

"Everyone on that field is a public servant", Trump said.

Scalise, who was shot in the hip, was transported to MedStar Washington and underwent surgery.

'An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us, ' he said, earning a standing ovation at the end of his short remarks.

Asked if the political climate and incidents like Wednesday's shooting indicated an increased threat to lawmakers, Ryan said it was incumbent on politicians to cool things down across the nation.

A government official identified the shooter as an IL man named James. It is overtly clear that James Hodgkinson had a target on the backs of Republican lawmakers.

In the Thursday interview, Ryan said he wanted to find more opportunities for Republicans and Democrats to "break bread" together. The man thanked him. He said the gunman had "a rifle of some sort. a lot of ammo". Wenstrup treated Scalise at the scene and told CNN he was concerned about the majority whip.

Several other people were also believed to have been hit, according to a lawmaker who witnessed the shooting.

The House canceled proceedings for the day.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., provided her own answer, telling reporters that the GOP plan "means higher health care costs, tens of millions of hardworking Americans losing health coverage, gutting key protections.and stealing Medicare".

Unlike the attack that almost claimed the life of former Arizona congresswoman Gabby Giffords six years ago, there was no knee-jerk talk yesterday about a home inspector's right to carry an assault weapon.

The team was taking batting practice when gunshots rang out and chaos erupted.

Mika, a former aide to Michigan Republican Rep. Tim Walberg, is director of government relations for Tyson Foods Washington, D.C., office and has worked for the company for more than six years.
