Spokesman: Giffords plans to attend husband's shuttle launch in April

(CNN) – U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords plans to attend the launch of the space shuttle Endeavour next month - a little more than three months after she was shot in the head outside a Tucson, Arizona, supermarket - her spokesman said.

Giffords' husband, Capt. Mark Kelly, will command the shuttle. After spending the days after the shooting at his wife's hospital bedside, he decided in February that would continue his assignment as the mission commander. At the time, Giffords' spokesman C.J. Karamargin said the Arizona Democrat "fully understands" that her husband is flying the shuttle and supports his decision.
