HACKENSACK, N.J. – Former Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle “Gabby” Giffords and her husband Captain Mike Kelly will be in Hackensack Thursday afternoon.
The pair will be campaigning for Phil Murphy, the Democratic nominee for New Jersey governor, at a get-out-the-vote rally at the Logan Family Life Center on Central Ave.
Murphy is facing Republican nominee Kim Guadagno, New Jersey’s current lieutenant governor, in the Nov. 7 election.
In 2011, Giffords was critically injured by a gunshot wound to her head during an assassination attempt. She and Kelly subsequently founded Giffords, an organization dedicated to saving lives from gun violence.
