Gabby Speaks

Posted By on Tue, Aug 24, 2010 at 10:16 PM

With about 20 people standing behind her holding Giffords placards, U.S. Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords told the Dems at Hotel Congress tonight that the race against her opponent, which is looking tonight like it's going to be Republican Jesse Kelly, is going to be about values.

"They don't reflect the values of Arizona," Giffords remarked about all the CD 8 Republican candidates.

"My values are right here in the room with me," she said, looking at her mother and father. "I was so fortunate to be raised by two down to earth people."

Giffords said she's concerned about Republican attacks on health care, public education and senior citizens.

"I think we need to be working to help middle class families, not working against them by cutting taxes for the most wealthy 2 percent," Giffords said.

"Are we going to continue to bicker and say no, or reach across ... We may not agree but we have to do what's right for the people of Arizona."
