Paula Aboud

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — State Sen. Paula Aboud of Tucson announced Monday she is running for the U.S. Congress. Aboud announced she will seek the Democratic nomination in the newly redrawn District Two which covers the majority of Pima County and all of Cochise County.

Aboud released a statement saying she plans to hold a town hall Monday night.

Aboud says she’s also backing Ron Barber’s campaign to fill out the remainder of former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords’ term.

Aboud was first appointed to the State Senate in 2006 to fill Giffords’ seat after Giffords was elected to Congress.
