ABC News’ Matthew Jaffe reports:

As Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-AZ, continues her recovery from last month’s shooting in Tucson, some of her closest friends in Congress are hosting a March 15 fundraiser in Washington, DC, for her re-election committee.

The fundraiser is being organized by Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-NY, Rep. Adam Smith, D-WA, and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-FL.

“We are so proud of her as she continues to make incredible strides in her recovery,” the lawmakers said in the invitation. “We look forward to seeing her again soon and to the day that she will rejoin us in the halls of Congress and resume her role as a leading advocate for solar energy, increased border security, job creation through innovation, and protecting the needs of military families and veterans.”

“But first Gabby must focus on the important work of her recovery. With that in mind, we have joined together to support Gabby, and we hope that we can count on you to join us!”

Text of the invitation is below.

Dear Friend,

We have joined together with our colleagues to support our good friend and colleague, Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.

As we all know, Gabby suffered serious injuries in the January 8th shooting in Tucson, AZ. We are so proud of her as she continues to make incredible strides in her recovery. We look forward to seeing her again soon and to the day that she will rejoin us in the halls of Congress and resume her role as a leading advocate for solar energy, increased border security, job creation through innovation, and protecting the needs of military families and veterans.

But first Gabby must focus on the important work of her recovery. With that in mind, we have joined together to support Gabby, and we hope that we can count on you to join us!

Thank you for your friendship and support.

Sincerely,

Kirsten Gillibrand

Adam Smith

Debbie Wasserman Schultz
