Arizona Senate President Tim Bee conceded defeat Wednesday in his effort to unseat U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in the 8th Congressional District of southern Arizona.

The Associated Press declared Giffords, a first-term Democrat, the winner by 11 p.m. Tuesday night, but Bee left a GOP gathering without comment about the election.

Wednesday, he congratulated Giffords on her 12-point victory.

“Congresswoman Giffords ran a strong campaign and we wish her well in representing us in Congress,” Bee said. He thanked his campaign workers and volunteers. “I’m proud of our supporters,” Bee said. “We fought a fight worth fighting.”

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
