Just spoke to Pia Carusone, Gabby Gifford's Chief of Staff. Gabby will resign this week from Congress to focus full time on recovery. What a class act Gabby is, and what a great job her staff has done during this difficult and challenging year. Can't wait to be with Gabby in Washington this week.

This morning I learned that Rep. Gabrielle Giffords will be resigning from Congress later this week. On her resignation, Arizona law requires me to call a special election to be held to determine her replacement.

I am extremely grateful for Gabby’s public service to our state and our nation and the difference she had made to our great state. Her grit and determination continue to inspire. As with all Americans, I will continue to hold Gabby in my thoughts and prayers as she continues her remarkable recovery.
