Former Hawaii Republican Congressman Charles K. Djou released a statement on the shooting of Arizona Democrat Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.
“My family and I are shocked and saddened to learn of the tragic shooting of my friend Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and members of her staff. Gabbie is a wonderful representative who works in a bi-partisan fashion for her constituents,” stated Djou. “I will always remember Gabbie for reaching out to Republicans and Democrats alike to find solutions toward bringing down Federal spending and establishing a strong national defense. My heart goes out to Rep. Giffords' family and the families of her staff on this tragic day.”

The two of them co-sponsored the Truth-in-Spending bill in the 111th Congress and co-authored editorials together advocating for restraint in Federal government spending. Djou and Giffords' bipartisan cooperative relationship was a subject on televised debates in Hawaii and Arizona.
