Wasserman Schultz on Giffords: ‘She’s Going to Come Back to Congress’

That's what Rep. Gabby Giffords' good friend Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz told me on "GMA" this morning when I asked her if the Arizona Democrat would return to Congress.

“I do think she’s going to come back to Congress. I mean the progress that she’s making I think that from what I understand she’s on track for that to happen,” the new head of the Democratic National Committee said. “Not sure when, but she’s making tremendous progress.”

Wasserman Schultz had dinner with Giffords in Houston on Friday, she said, after Giffords returned from Florida where she had hoped to see her husband off on the Endeavour launch.

Her recovery from the January gunshot wound to the head is going well and Giffords is beginning to walk instead of using a wheel chair, Wasserman Schultz said.

“[She] is responding in more complex sentences. So she’s making progress. She’s got a long way to go but we’re all so proud of her, she’s doing great,” Wasserman Schultz told me.
