Tucson, AZ – Ron Barber’s campaign for Congress announced today that former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords will join Ron Barber at a concert to get out the vote for the June 12 CD8 special election.

Musical artists including Sergio Mendoza y la Orkesta, Salvador Duran, the Kevin Pakulis Band and Joey Burns and Jacob Valenzuela of Calexico are performing at the GOTV concert, which takes place on June 9, from 5pm to 8pm at the Rialto Theatre in Tucson. Admission to the concert is free, though those attending are asked to sign up for one GOTV volunteer shift.

“I am excited to be on stage with Gabby to encourage Southern Arizonans to get to the polls and vote in this important election,” said Barber.

“Gabby is eager to get back home to Tucson and help get out the vote for Ron,” said Giffords’ husband, Captain Mark Kelly, US Navy (Ret.). “We need Ron Barber in Congress to stand up for Southern Arizonans and to help rebuild Arizona’s middle class.”
