CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — A spokeswoman for former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords says she’s attending the Democratic National Convention.

Hayley Zachary said Wednesday that the former congresswoman was excited to be at the convention but stopped short of discussing details of Giffords’ schedule while in Charlotte, N.C.

Giffords recently moved back to Tucson as part of her recovery from a gunshot wound to the head in January 2011.

She and her husband Mark Kelly have also just started a political action committee called Gabby PAC. Giffords developed a reputation as a centrist in Congress and a news release announcing the PAC said that it would only support candidates who work for bipartisan solutions to issues.
