Brewer Won't Run For Kyl's Seat

Cross Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer's (R) name off the list of Republicans who might seek the seat being vacated by Sen. Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.).

"You can bet that I'll be following the 2012 race closely as it has serious ramifications for Arizona," Brewer said in a Thursday statement. "I will not, however, involve myself in this contest as a candidate. Arizona faces serious issues and needs a full-time governor, and I intend to see this state's recovery to completion."

Brewer's name had been floated as a possible GOP candidate after Kyl announced his retirement Thursday. She is term-limited and can't seek reelection in 2014. A long list of Republicans may enter the race for the Senate seat, including Rep. Jeff Flake (R), who appears to be readying a bid.
