(New York Times) Gov. Jan Brewer of Arizona said Wednesday that she would not seek to run for re-election, ending speculation about her plans.
Even though the Arizona Constitution limits governors to two terms, Ms. Brewer had talked about trying to find a way around it. Her first term came by appointment, after the governor at the time, Janet Napolitano, left to become President Obama’s Homeland Security secretary, and Ms. Brewer could have made a case in court that although she served two terms, one of them was not an elected term, so it should not count.
