Giffords Expected To Endorse Former Aide For Her Seat

February 7, 2012

National Journal's Billy House reports that former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., will announce as early as Wednesday that she'll support her former aide, Ron Barber, in the special election to fill her seat:

Former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., is expected to announce as early as Wednesday or Thursday that she is endorsing the man who served as her office's district director - and who was wounded with her in the Jan. 8, 2011, shooting melee in Tucson - to fill out the remainder of her congressional term.

As part of the decision, Ron Barber, 66, is agreeing to not seek reelection this fall to represent a newly drawn version of the Tucson area district, according to multiple sources in Arizona and Washington, who are familiar with the discussions.

"It's the perfect solution - it's not official yet but all signs point that way," said Pima County Democratic Party Chairman Jeff Rogers, in an interview on Tuesday with National Journal. Barber did not immediately return a telephone call or e-mail.
