Rep. Scalise readmitted to intensive care unit

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was readmitted to ­MedStar Washington’s Intensive Care Unit today. He is listed in serious condition (downgraded from fair) due to new concerns about infection. The hospital did not elaborate on these concerns.

Scalise’s condition had steadily improved since mid-June when he was shot by a left-wing gunman who trying to carry out the mass assassination of GOP members of Congress. The Louisiana congressman was released from intensive care nine days after the shooting.

Now, however, he is back in intensive care. The hospital promised to provide an update on Scalise’s condition tomorrow (Thursday).

Our thoughts and prayers are with Rep. Scalise as he battles this latest setback.
