Complete Repudiation: Pro-Gun Candidate Wins Gabby Giffords' Former House Seat

Complete Repudiation: Pro-Gun Candidate Wins Gabby Giffords' Former House Seat

On December 17, pro-Second Amendment candidate Martha McSally (R) was officially declared the winner in the race for Arizona’s second congressional district over pro-gun control Representative Ron Barber (D-AZ-2.)

Arizona’s second district is gun control proponent Gabby Giffords’ former seat and the contest she campaigned hardest for during the months prior to the November 4 mid-term elections.

According to Roll Call, McSally won the election by “167 votes.” Barber released a statement congratulating her and “wishing her well in serving southern Arizonans.” 

Breibart News previously reported that Barber was trying to get re-elected on a gun control platform, while McSally was running as a pro-Second Amendment candidate. On September 20, Breitbart News reported that Giffords ads against McSally were filled with such vitriol that The Arizona Republic described them as “base and vile,” and said Giffords was harming Barber and her own image more than she was hurting McSally.

McSally’s win gives the GOP a historic majority in the House.
