Who is Congressman Steve Scalise?

Story highlights

Scalise was injured in a shooting at baseball practice on June 14

He is back in the intensive care unit, his office says in a statement

CNN —  

Rep. Steve Scalise has been readmitted to the intensive care unit “due to new concerns for infection,” a statement from his office said.

His condition is listed as serious, according to the statement.

Scalise, the Republican House majority whip who represents Louisiana, was critically injured when a gunman, identified as James T. Hodgkinson, opened fire on the GOP baseball team as they were practicing for a charity game on June 14.

Hodgkinson, a small business owner in Illinois, had been vocal about his support for Bernie Sanders – and his hatred for conservatives. He died following a shootout with authorities.

Scalise sustained a single gunshot wound to his left hip and suffered “significant damage” to his blood vessels, bones and some internal organs, his doctor said last month.

The congressman’s condition subsequently improved, and he was released from the MedStar Washington Hospital Center’s intensive care unit less than two weeks ago.

An aide to Scalise told CNN, “From the start, the whip’s doctors have made it clear that this will be a process with ups and downs, and this is in keeping with those expectations.”

Another update on Scalise is expected Thursday, according to his office.

Following the news of his return to the ICU, many tweeted well wishes using the hashtag #PrayForScalise.
