House Majority Whip Steve Scalise returned to the Capitol Thursday morning for the first time since he was shot and gravely wounded as he practiced with the GOP congressional baseball team in June.
In statement released by Scalise’s office, this will reportedly be the Whip’s only public appearance today and for the remainder of the week.
Scalise was welcomed by a round of loud applause and cheers in the House chamber by his colleagues on Thursday, with Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-California, and Rep. Kevin Brady, R-Texas, embracing the Congressman and handing out high-fives to the Republican.
A standing ovation for the Congressman lasted several minutes before Speaker Paul Ryan gaveled the House into order.
As Ryan introduced Scalise to take the floor, appearing to break down with emotion, he said, “Our prayers have been answered.” He added, “His bravery and family’s strength have been such an inspiration.”
Scalise laughed when asked what his purpose was on the floor, in accordance with parliamentarian rules. Ryan then allowed the Republican to speak for however long he wanted.
“As you can imagine these last three and a half months have been pretty challenging times for me and my family,” said Scalise, thanking his colleagues for the outpouring of love and warmth.
