On Monday night, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.), who was the victim of an attempted assassination earlier this year, returned to the House floor after months of recovery to cast her vote.
Giffords’ campaign has so far raised $683,960 — 4 percent more than she had raised in the second quarter of the 2010 cycle, according to an analysis by the Center for Responsive Politics. Her campaign also reported spending $181,500 and had $787,950 cash on hand at the end of June.
The morning after Giffords’ surprise visit, Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that the party was helping Giffords prepare for re-election.
“We’re certainly getting her ready to make sure she can run for re-election at the point that they’re ready to decide on that,” she said.
