Giffords' Friends Begin Raising Money For Her

Posted By on Wed, Feb 16, 2011 at 11:45 AM

Politico reports that Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords' friends in Congress are starting to raise money for a future campaign:

As Rep. Gabrielle Giffords recovers from last month’s shooting, her closest friends in Congress are moving to raise money for her reelection committee to make sure she has the necessary resources to run a campaign in 2012.

“As we all know, Gabby suffered serious injuries in the January 8th shooting in Tucson, AZ. We are so proud of her as she continues to make incredible strides in her recovery,” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Reps. Adam Smith (D-Wash.) and Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) write in the cover letter of an invitation obtained by POLITICO. “We look forward to seeing her again soon and to the day that she will rejoin us in the halls of Congress and resume her role as a leading advocate for solar energy, increased border security, job creation through innovation, and protecting the needs of military families and veterans. But first Gabby must focus on the important work of her recovery. With that in mind, we have joined together to support Gabby, and we hope that we can count on you to join us!”
