1st potential candidate for Giffords seat emerges
Arizona state senator wants Giffords to say early next year whether she'll seek re-election
By The Associated Press

PHOENIX (AP) ' A Republican state senator is questioning whether Democrats are exploiting a perception that Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is running for re-election as a way to blunt attempts by the GOP to win the seat.

State Sen. Frank Antenori of Tucson says Giffords shouldn't wait until a May 15 deadline for submitting nominating petitions to say whether she's in or out.

Antenori is the first potential candidate to publicly declare an interest in running for the southern Arizona post and has formed an exploratory committee for a potential congressional run.

Antenori says Republicans aren't going to wait until the May 15 deadline to make an announcement.

Giffords hasn't publicly said whether she'll seek re-election.
