PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Gov. Jan Brewer released the following statement on Rep. Gabrielle Giffords' resignation.

This morning, I received the official letter of resignation from Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. As a fellow elected official, I know her district will miss her leadership. As a friend, I am so sorry Gabby's resignation has come under these circumstances.

From the Arizona House of Representatives to the U.S. Congress, Gabby has always served her constituents with dignity and distinction. Her service will be deeply missed, and I join the people of Arizona in praying for her continued recovery.

For the purposes of Arizona Law, the Congresswoman's office will be officially declared vacant at 5 p.m. (Arizona Time) today, at which time I will have 72 hours to set a date for a Special Primary election. The winner of the special primary and general elections will complete the remainder of Congresswoman Giffords' term, in accordance with state law.
