COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - Representative Giffords has a friend in the Midlands - Congressman Jim Clyburn.
He told WIS News 10 Sunday how they became close. It has to do with another man who just happens to be a Columbia native. "Gabby and I started working very closely together because she knew I knew Charles Bolden, and it became an even closer relationship after Bolden became national administrator," said Rep. Clyburn, "So she and I continue to work closely on those issues."
When asked about his security, Rep. Clyburn stated for safety reasons, his wife asked him not to talk about that issue publicly.
