Bennett might block Brewer filing for 3rd term
Web Producer: Taylor Higgins
PHOENIX (AP) - 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 term.
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.
