WATCH: "Take It From Me: Congress Must Act....": Gabby Giffords' First TV Ad

Retired Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and her husband, Ret. Cpt. Mark Kelly, have released the first television ad for their new anti-gun violence Super PAC, Americans For Responsible Solutions.

In it, Giffords, who is recovering from her near-assassination two years ago, is the only voice heard on the ad, though Kelly is standing by her side when the two are on camera at the end of the ad.

The ad finishes with Giffords saying, "Take it from me.  Congress must act!  Let's get this done!"  The  ad asks viewers to join us, and the body of the ad addresses the proposed partial solution of universal background checks.

Arizona's Politics is seeking information on when and where the ad is running, and how much is being spent on it.  We will update when we receive an answer.  (However, Politico is reporting that they are hoping to bookend tomorrow's State of the Union address with the ad, and that they are planning another fundraiser for tomorrow.)
