The Daily Caller:
Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, who survived a gunshot wound to the head during an horrific assassination attempt earlier this year, received a standing ovation in Congress as she surprised members by showing up to vote in favor of raising the federal debt ceiling.
“Gabrielle has returned to Washington to support a bipartisan bill to prevent economic crisis,” her Twitter account announced shortly before the vote. Her Tweet instructed viewers to turn on C-SPAN to watch.
It was her first vote in Congress since the Jan. 8 attack that shocked the nation. Giffords was injured when a gunman opened fire in Tuscon at a constituent meeting she was holding.
Six people were killed and 13 people were injured. Jared Lee Loughner has been charged.
