Recovering Congressman Steve Scalise talks to CBS

Recovering Congressman Steve Scalise talks to CBS”

This press conference took place one day before he was shot.

CBS says "60 Minutes" has landed the first television interview with House Majority Whip Steve Scalise since he was shot at a congressional baseball team practice in June.

Whip Scalise will be resuming his work at the Capitol, while also completing an extended period of out-patient rehabilitation over the coming months.

The congressman is participating in House votes Thursday morning and will address his colleagues.

This morning, he tweeted a photo of himself standing at the Capitol with the simple message, "I'm back".

Scalise was shot in June when a gunman opened fire on the GOP practice for the annual charity baseball game.

Scalise, 51, underwent several surgeries during two prolonged hospital stays and has been recovering at home and in inpatient rehabilitation since late July. The gunman, who died in a shoot-out with police and Secret Service, was a left-wing activist who supported Sen.

What role Scalise will play in Republicans' fall agenda is unclear. But he has gradually been returning to the spotlight, giving an interview with "60 Minutes" set to air Sunday.
