(WHDH/CNN) -A group founded by former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords' and her husband, Mark Kelly, is ready to take on the NRA this election season.

Americans for responsible solutions announced it will back candidates in 11 key Senate and House races, in the push for gun law changes.

The group plans to spend as much as $20 million.

Most of the candidates are Democrats, but one is Republican Senator Susan Collins of Maine.

She supported a measure for expanded background checks at gun shows.

One of the other candidates is Ron Barber, who worked with Gifford's and was injured in the Tucson shooting that also injured Gifford's.
