Giffords' Husband: I Don't Want a Life in Politics

Friday, 01 Jul 2011 06:19 PM

WASHINGTON (AP) — Mark Kelly, the astronaut husband of wounded congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, is knocking down speculation that he is interested in running for political office now that he is retiring from NASA.

Kelly has been mentioned as a potential candidate for office in Giffords' home state of Arizona. But the commander of the space shuttle, Endeavour, told an audience at the National Press Club in Washington that his main focus now and for the foreseeable future would be to spend more time with his children and take care of his wife as she seeks to recover from a January shooting in Tucson.

Kelly called Giffords the politician in the family, while he is the "space guy," and he sees no reason to change that now.
