Former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) will lead the Pledge of Allegiance at the Democratic National Convention on Thursday night, Roll Call reports.
Last month, Giffords, who was shot in the tragic 2011 Tucson shooting, reached a milestone on her path to recovery. In August, she announced that she was moving back to Tucson with her husband, retired astronaut Mark Kelly.
News that Giffords will make a surprise appearance at the Democratic convention in Charlotte on Thursday comes on the heels of the former congresswoman launching her new political action committee, Gabby PAC.
