Florida – -( A group founded by former Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and her husband sent $100,000 this week to a political committee supporting Democratic gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist, according to a newly filed finance report.

Giffords was shot in the head in January 2011 and left Congress a year later.

She and her husband, Mark Kelly, founded Americans for Responsible Solutions, which calls for changes in gun laws.

The group sent $100,000 on Tuesday to the committee “Charlie Crist for Florida,” which overall has raised about $30 million and plays a major role in Crist’s campaign.

Republican Gov. Rick Scott, meanwhile, has received backing from the National Rifle Association, including a radio ad from Marion Hammer, a past president of the NRA who is an influential gun-rights lobbyist in Florida.

The NRA and I have our own radio ad supporting Gov. Rick Scott found below:

Sorry, Rick Scott is a union busting idiot. He needs to go away.
