Bennett might block Brewer filing for 3rd term

PHOENIX — Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett says he might try to
block Gov. Jan Brewer from getting on the ballot if she tries to run for another

Brewer has floated the idea that term limits don’t prevent her from running
again because she wasn’t elected to the partial term she held after Democrat
Janet Napolitano resigned in 2009.

Bennett himself is a possible candidate for governor. He has a committee to
explore such a candidacy. He has said he believes that term limits bar Brewer
from running again.

His office processes candidate filings but he told Phoenix station KTVK during an interview aired late Sunday that his office
might not accept Brewer’s paperwork.

He noted that both he and Brewer swore to uphold the state Constitution.
