Former Giffords aide clinches re-election to her seat

Rep. Ron Barber, D-Ariz. - the onetime aide to former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords who was shot alongside her in an assassination attempt nearly two years ago - was re-elected today after his Republican challenger conceded a race that for 10 days had been too close to call, reports.

Barber had won Giffords' seat for the remainder of her term in a special election over the summer. Though still undergoing intensive therapy, Giffords devoted time to campaigning for Barber's re-election bid, which was challenged by former Air Force combat pilot Martha McSally.

Analysis out Friday by the Arizona Republic deeming the remaining uncounted ballots short of what McSally would need to surpass Barber's edge clinched the race for Barber. The result tips Arizona's delegation in favor of Democrats, for just the second time in 45 years.
