White House officials say President Obama spoke with the husband of Congresswoman Giffords, Mark Kelly at some point Saturday to express concern and support for her.

We knew the President had tried to reach Kelly, but there was difficulty because he was rushing to get to Tucson. They did eventually connect by telephone.

Mike Emanuel currently serves as chief congressional correspondent for FOX News Channel (FNC). He joined FNC in 1997 as a Los Angeles-based correspondent.
