Giffords announces support for Obama’s nomination

Citizen Staff Writer

U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords announced her support for Sen. Barack
Obama moments after the Illinois senator became the Democratic Party’s
presumptive nominee for president.

Giffords, a freshman Democrat, had been an uncommitted superdelegate
who held off on an endorsement until all the votes were cast.

Arizona Democratic Party Chairman Don Bivens also announced his
endorsement of Obama as national news organizations projected Obama
would have the 2,118 delegates needed for nomination at the party’s
convention in August.

Giffords represents the 8th Congressional District, which was
carried by New York Sen. Hillary Clinton, who won Arizona on Feb. 5.



Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
