CONGRESS

Barber Will Run for Full Term to Succeed Giffords

Ron Barber, the Arizona Democrat running in a June special election to fill out the remainder of the term in the House seat vacated by his former boss, Gabrielle Giffords, says he’s also running in November for a full two year term.

“I have made a decision that I am going to run for congressional district 2,” said Barber, in a conference call with reporters.

Barber, 66, who had been Giffords’ district director, is still running in an April 17 special primary election to fill out the remainder of Giffords’ term. There has been speculation that Barber would not seek reelection this fall, his aim being essentially to be a caretaker of the congressional seat through the end of the year to help see some of Giffords’ legislative priorities through.
