Ron Barber wins Arizona's 2nd Congressional District

Democratic U.S. Rep. Ron Barber has won the U.S. House seat in
Arizona's 2nd Congressional District.

Barber won a special election earlier this year to fill the rest of Rep.
Gabrielle Giffords' term in Congress. Barber was shot twice alongside
Giffords during an assassination attempt on the congresswoman that
killed six people and wounded many others outside a Safeway store
in Tucson on Jan. 8, 2011.


Since being elected to serve Southern Arizona in Congress, Barber
has worked to keep taxes low for middle class families, protect Social Security
and Medicare, create jobs, support military families and bases and secure the border.

Republican political newcomer Martha McSally's economic proposals have
included cutting federal regulations and lowering taxes.
