AZ GOP voters go to polls in uneventful primary

PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona Republicans go to the polls this week in what could be one of the least-watched races in the presidential primary.
With the state long considered an easy win for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, the candidates might not have even made appearances in Arizona were it not for the fact that CNN held a debate in Mesa last week.
Even then, little attention was paid to issues that might have energized Arizonans despite some recent polls showing GOP rival Rick Santorum closing in on what had been considered a double-digit lead for Romney.
Republican Gov. Jan Brewer gave her endorsement Sunday to Romney, saying the former Massachusetts governor "is the man that can carry the day."
Brewer made the endorsement during an interview on NBC's "Meet the Press."
Clausing reported from Albuquerque, N.M.
