Top Arizona Election Official in Tampa on Primary Day

It's primary day in Arizona today, but Secretary of State Ken Bennett is otherwise engaged -- in Tampa, at the Republican National Convention. The Arizona Republic:

Bennett makes no apologies for his absence, saying that this is his first convention and that his professional staff can oversee the election and call him if they really need him.

"So, there's no specific function that I personally perform on election day other than dealing with issues if they come up," Bennett told The Arizona Republic.

Bennett is considering a run for governor in 2014, and formed an exploratory committee in May.
