Gabby Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly will be featured guests
at the opening of Hillary Clinton's Union County HQ Wednesday.
In an email late Monday afternoon, Plainfield Democratic chair Adrian O. Mapp advised that former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly will be featured guests at the opening of Hillary Clinton's Union County headquarters Wednesday.
Mapp forwarded the news at the request of Union County Democratic Party chairperson Jerry Green.
Giffords, who represented Arizona's 8th Congressional District from 2005 until 2012, stepped down after a failed assassination attempt at an outdoor constituent event left her severely wounded.
She has since become an advocate for stricter gun control measures, and with her husband Mark Kelly, has formed Americans for Responsible Solutions to promote tougher gun laws, including stopping gun trafficking, and limiting the sale of high-capacity magazines and assault rifles.
Clinton's New Jersey presidential campaign will operate out of the Union County Democratic headquarters, which is where Wednesday's kickoff will take place at 2:00 PM. The headquarters is at 77 Brant Avenue, Suite 303, in Clark (see direction here).
