Brewer Decides Against Moving Arizona Primary

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) "has decided against moving the state's presidential primary to Jan. 31 and instead announced Friday that she has reached a 'preliminary' agreement with the Republican National Committee to host the leading GOP candidates in an officially sanctioned debate later this year," the Arizona Republic reports.

"However, a time and a place for the debate have not yet been set, and Brewer is still suggesting that she might hold an earlier than usual presidential-preference contest, with the goal of putting Arizona at the front of the primary pack."

Said Brewer: "I am keeping my options open to see what serves the state best."
