TUCSON, Ariz. - A plane carrying Rep. Gabrielle Giffords has arrived in Houston after a flight from Tucson.

The congresswoman is being moved to a rehabilitation hospital in Houston.

An ambulance took Giffords to Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson along a route lined with well-wishers holding flags.

It's the first time Giffords left the Tucson hospital since she was brought there with a gunshot wound to the head nearly two weeks ago. Six people died in the attack Jan. 8 outside a grocery store, where Giffords was meeting with constituents.
