On Tuesday, voters in Arizona’s 8th Congressional District are choosing who will complete the term of Gabriel Giffords, the former congresswoman who is still recovering from her wounds from a 2011 shooting rampage.
The candidates are Republican Jesse Kelly, who narrowly lost to Giffords in 2010, and Democrat Ron Barber, a former Giffords aide.
Kelly is promising to repeal President Obama’s health care reform law and the GOP sees this as a chance to capture the former Democratic seat.
