Giffords Interview Not Guaranteed Yet
Rep. Gabby Giffords, D-Ariz., and her husband former astronaut Mark Kelly will be participating in the ABC special concerning her recovery, but an interview is not guaranteed.
"Given the nature of her injuries and recovery, the Congresswoman's exact participation can only be known as we move forward," an ABC spokesperson told us today.
ABC announced the November 15 special yesterday, but Giffords spokesperson Mark Kimble told the Tucson Sentinel that Giffords "has not decided if she's going to conduct an on-air interview."
An ABC spokesperson reaffirmed the special "will fully and respectfully document Giffords' remarkable road to recovery with her husband by her side and will include dozens of hours of video tape that document that journey."
If she is interviewed, it's almost certain Giffords will be asked whether she'll run for re-election. Agreeing to appear on ABC -- not coincidentally, the day before her book comes out -- may indicate Giffords has reached an answer.
