VISIT: Arizona Rep. David Schweikert Indoors Tomorrow, Saturday To Meet With Constituents; First Since Fellow Rep. Giffords Shot

New Arizona Rep. David Schweikert (R-CD5) is the first of Arizona's Congressional delegation to announce open meetings with constituents since the attempted assassination of colleague Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-CD8).

The "listening sessions" were announced on Schweikert's Twitter account, and will take place tomorrow (Friday), from 9-11a.m. at the Tempe Pyle Adult Recreation Center, and Saturday, from 2-4p.m. at the Pecos Community Center in Phoenix (Ahwatukee).

(The addresses are 655 E. Southern Ave. and 17010 S. 48th Street, respectively.)

The announcement does not appear to be up on either Schweikert's official House website or his old campaign website.

No word on formats or security arrangements yet, but the fact that both will be in inside rooms - as opposed to Giffords' ill-fated session outside a Safeway grocery store - will make it more easily controllable.
