Gabrielle Giffords/ARS

Southeastern Arizona had not voted for a Democrat for 20 years, and it would take a special type of Democrat to take it back. We worked with Gabrielle Giffords to win a series of tough elections by embracing her Western spirit and heritage – while running aggressively against Washington politics and the Tea Party Republican agenda.  And when tragedy struck, we worked closely with Gabby, and designed a way for her to speak directly with Arizona – and the nation – about her difficult decision to resign.  Today, we work with her advocacy organization, Americans for Responsible Solutions, to help reduce gun violence in America.
