Rep. Gabrielle Giffords returned Tuesday evening to her hometown of Tucson for a private visit with her family and friends over the Thanksgiving holiday.
Giffords, a third-generation Tucsonan, arrived in Arizona from Houston, according to a news release. She will spend Thanksgiving with her husband, Mark Kelly, her parents and other family members and friends.
This is the third time Giffords has returned to her hometown since she was shot Jan. 8. She also returned for the Father's Day and Labor Day weekends.
Giffords was one of 19 people shot as she met with constituents at her Congress On Your Corner event in Northwest Tucson. Six people died and the congresswoman was treated at University Medical Center for a gunshot wound to the head.
