“Early voting in Arizona has begun, and we are making sure that no voter is left out! There is too much at stake to stay at home this year!

Join Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly, as we work to elect Hillary Clinton as our next president and turn Arizona blue—don’t forget to bring a friend!”

Former CD 8 Congresswoman Gabby Giffords served for 5 years, 2007 to 2012, but had to resign due to being shot in the head on Jan. 8, 2011 by Jared Loughner. Her husband Mark Kelly is a retired NASA astronaut.

  1. Standing room only to hear welcome from Ward 1 Councilmember Regina Romero, then CD 2 Candidate Dr. Matt Heinz (running for Gabby’s old seat), Capt. Mark Kelly, and then former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords. Video online of speeches:

    Also attending LD 9 Rep. Matt Kopec, candidates Brian Bickel for D1 Supervisor and Pam Powers Hannley, candidate for LD 9 House. Closing speeches by PCDP Chair Jo Holt and Treasurer Aaron Rottenstein, to encourage campaign workers to get out the vote by November 8, 2016.

    Afterward I had a chance to briefly speak with Gabby outside the HQ and hold her hand. Such a tough life for her now after that mass shooting, due to her disabilities. But I bet she’s happy to be alive, and able to still campaign for reasonable gun laws.
