Jesse Kelly Ready for Rematch Against Giffords?

Posted By on Fri, Mar 11, 2011 at 8:50 AM

We'll learn more about Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords' condition today when her doctors at Houston's TIRR facility hold a press conference.

But it appears that Republican Jesse Kelly is moving forward with his plans for a rematch against Giffords. National Journal's Hotline reports:

As Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) continues to recover from a near-fatal assassination attempt in January, her 2010 Republican challenger is making his first moves toward a possible rematch.

Jesse Kelly, who came within one percentage point of Giffords last November, filed a Statement of Organization with the Federal Election Commission on Thursday, setting up his campaign committee and designating the 8th District as his focus again. Arizona will also gain another congressional seat after redistricting.
