Gabrielle Giffords Unsure About 2012 Run

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’ return also spurred speculation regarding her future political plans. Although she has not announced any decision yet her own re-election, her campaign continues to remain active.

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.
