House Majority Whip and Louisiana Congressman Steve Scalise made his return to the House Chamber in the United States Capitol today. It comes just months after Scalise was nearly fatally wounded by a gunman during a congressional baseball practice in Virginia. Scalise focused on the power of prayer and thanked both Republican and Democratic colleagues for their support.

The clearly emotional Scalise thanked his wife and support team along with the Capitol Police Officers who are credited with saving his life and others. In a tweet, he simply said, "I'm back."
