Arizona Rep. Farley: Gabrielle Giffords' family is 'strong,' 'optimistic'

State Representative Steve Farley spoke with Kiran Chetry on CNN’s American Morning about Representative Gabrielle Giffords for fourteen years and currently occupies her old seat in the Arizona state legislature.

He visited Giffords in the hospital yesterday and says she is moving and on both sides of her body and responding to verbal commands. Farley said there's a spirit not of anger or vengeance but of love, hope and reconciliation that will help move this nation past this to become united.
