Urgent: Giffords and husband to attend State of the Union address as guest of McCain and Barber
Per Pergram-Capitol Hil
Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) and husband Mark Kelly will attend the president’s State of the Union speech next week as a guest of Rep. Ron Barber (D-AZ) and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ).
Giffords was seriously wounded in a shooting rampage a little more than two years ago an appeared alongside her husband Mark Kelly at a Senate hearing last week on gun violence. Barber was wounded in the same shooting and later won Giffords seat.
The president’s efforts to curb gun violence will be a key issue at the State of the Union.
