PHOENIX – Elections dates were set Friday to fill the seat left vacant by the resignation this week of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.).

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer declared that a special primary election will be held on April 17 and the general election on June 12.

Giffords submitted her letter of resignation to Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on the House floor on Wednesday.

Giffords, who has represented Arizona in the House for five years, announced Sunday that she would step down to focus on recovering from the brain injury she sustained when a gunman opened fire on a constituent meeting she was holding in a Tucson supermarket parking lot in January last year.
