MONROE, Conn. -- Former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords is expected to visit Newtown, Conn., Friday to meet with families affected by the second-largest school shooting in the country's history.

A spokesman for Connecticut's lieutenant governor said Thursday that the visit by Giffords and her husband, astronaut Mark Kelly, was planned but not confirmed for the afternoon.

Giffords has been making a long recovery from being shot in the head at an event in Tucson.
