PHOENIX - Democrat Ron Barber has won a special House election in southern Arizona to finish the term of a congresswoman wounded in a mass shooting
Former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords resigned a year after she was shot in the head while meeting with constituents at a Tucson shopping center.
Barber, a Giffords' aide, defeated Republican Jesse Kelly, a former Marine who narrowly lost a House race to Giffords in 2010.
The 66-year-old Barber was seriously injured in the same rampage in which Giffords was shot. Six others were killed.
Holding onto the seat has been a priority for Democrats as they seek to regain control of the House of Representatives in November.
