Standing room only at upbeat Giffords race kickoff

TUCSON -- Former State Senator Gabby Giffords formally kicked off her campaign for congress this windy morning at the Arizona Inn. A big crowd was there, including Rep. Grijalva to introduce her and offer his strong endorsement to boost her campaign.

The event started with everyone singing 'America the beautiful', which I enjoyed. Then mostly general comments about 'our future' were made by some guests, including Eddie Basha. The mood was optimistic and positive.

This is a key race for Arizona and America. Right now I give the advantage to 35 year old Giffords to win this important seat. Clearly, she has the mojo right now on the dem side of this race. She's an Arizona native who's tactful, smart, and tough enough to take down most Republicans -- including offensive blowhards like Randy Graf.

The primary will be good between Giffords, Patty Weiss, Jeff Latas, Cochise County Supervisor Paul Newman (if he enters the race), and others. Get involved, support your candidate, and vote.
