Conn. lt. gov.'s office: Giffords meeting planned

NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) A spokesman says Connecticut's lieutenant governor has been invited to attend a meeting between former Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and families of the victims of the deadly Newtown elementary school shooting.

Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman's spokesman Steve Jensen said last night a visit by Giffords and her husband, astronaut Mark Kelly, is ``planned but not confirmed'' for this afternoon.

He says the plans include Giffords meeting at a private home with families of the 20 children and six school officials killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School last month. He says Giffords may also make a second appearance.

Phone calls and emails to Giffords' representatives weren't returned.

Giffords was wounded by a gunman in a mass shooting two years ago in Tucson, Ariz. Six people died in that assault.
