Giffords sent e-mail before shooting calling for 'moderation'
FRANKFORT, Ky. -- The night before she was wounded in a shooting that killed six people, Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords sent an e-mail to a friend in Kentucky discussing how to "promote centrism and moderation."
In the message, obtained by The Associated Press, the Democratic on Friday congratulated Republican Secretary of State Trey Grayson on his new position at Harvard University.
She wrote him: "After you get settled, I would love to talk about what we can do to promote centrism and moderation. I am one of only 12 Dems left in a GOP district (the only woman) and think that we need to figure out how to tone our rhetoric and partisanship down."
