"As reports spread online that shooting suspect James Hodgkinson had expressed anti-Republican sentiments, some conservative political figures and alt-right news outlets began speculating on whether Wednesday's attack on a GOP congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Va., was connected to left-wing rhetoric against President Donald Trump".

Scalise is still in critical condition at Medstar Washington Hospital Center, but an update Thursday indicated that his condition had improved after a second surgery.

"Congressman Steve Scalise sustained a single rifle shot to the left hip".

"He underwent immediate surgery, and an additional procedure to stop bleeding".

Williams, a Republican coach who injured his leg and ankle while diving for cover during the shooting, also said it was important to play ball as planned.

"It was important to come together to show bipartisanship", said New Orleans resident Caroline Waller, who had traveled to Washington to watch the game. "I have a feeling that Steve has made a great sacrifice, but there could be some unity being brought to our country". The attacker, who was shot by Scalise's security detail and later died, was an IL man whose social media postings showed anger at Trump and the Republicans.

Trump and his wife Melania visited Scalise in the hospital Wednesday evening, bringing the injured congressman flowers.

Vice President Mike Pence paid a visit Thursday morning to Scalise, his former colleague when he served in the House.
