Endeavour ready to go; Giffords arrives to watch

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) - Wounded Rep. Gabrielle Giffords has arrived in Florida for the Monday morning launch of the space shuttle Endeavour that will be commanded by her husband, Mark Kelly.

A posting on the congresswoman's Facebook page says she flew in on a NASA jet Sunday afternoon and got a quick fly-by of Endeavour at the pad. The Democrat from Arizona arrived with the family of Endeavour pilot Gregory Johnson.

The shuttle is scheduled to be fueled late Sunday night, and the weather looks good for Endeavour's 8:56 a.m. launch on Monday.

An April launch try was delayed because of electrical problems.

Giffords was wounded in the face in mass shooting in January but is making a remarkable recovery. Doctors have cleared her to travel to see the launch.
