The announcement comes as a downgrade for his health. It is reportedly due to an infection he has contracted.

Scalise was one of four shot in the incident exactly three weeks ago, including congressional staffer Zach Barth, Capitol Police special agent Crystal Griner, and Tysons Food lobbyist Matt Mika, who was recently released from the hospital, according to the Washington Examiner.
