"SNIP...........................................


When Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was critically wounded during an assassination attempt in January 2011, the future of the Arizona Democratic Party’s statewide ambitions was put on hold.

Despite Democrats’ argument that the state is shifting toward them politically, they still haven’t been able to break through in offices other than the U.S. House. Today, Arizona Democrats hold not one statewide office.

But if anyone can change that, many believe it’s Giffords’s husband Mark Kelly.

The question is whether he wants it.

3. I think they would as well.

If he runs for office it will be for governor, because he might not want to travel all the time to DC. We shall see.
