U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Arizona, a strong supporter of gay rights

Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, who was shot today in Tucson, is a member of the House LGBT Equality Caucus and is a strong supporter of gay rights.

After her House victory in 2006, she gave this statement as reported by HRC, the Human Rights Campaign:

"I have stood up for equality in Arizona, and I am grateful that HRC and the GLBT community stood with our campaign during the primary and the general elections. We can accomplish so much for our families when we work together. Fairness is an essential American value, and when we champion fairness, we can win decisive victories in even the most competitive congressional districts."
