Voters Head To Polls In Arizona Election To Replace Giffords05:07

This article is more than 7 years old.

On Tuesday, voters in Arizona's 8th Congressional District are choosing who will complete the term of Gabriel Giffords, the former congresswoman who is still recovering from her wounds from a 2011 shooting rampage.

The candidates are Republican Jesse Kelly, who narrowly lost to Giffords in 2010, and Democrat Ron Barber, a former Giffords aide.

Kelly is promising to repeal President Obama's health care reform law and the GOP sees this as a chance to capture the former Democratic seat.
