PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona and her husband, Mark Kelly, a retired astronaut, are coming to Maine next month to raise money for Mike Michaud's gubernatorial campaign. Michaud is running against Governor Paul LePage and independent Eliot Cutler.
Besides raising funds, the event is billed as a "garden party" in Kennebunkport.
Giffords and Kelly are advocates for tougher gun laws. They've recently clashed with the NRA, the organization that gave Michaud high marks for his positions on gun control, and has donated thousands of dollars to his campaigns over the years.
