Gov. Brewer wants a third term, but the AZ Constitution says- no way

Phoenix, Ariz– Brewer wants a third term and she made it very clear to the Arizona Republic. Last year in May, Brewer dropped a line that ‘Dems’ cringed on- she said, because she took over Janet Napolitano term, that first term doesn’t make it her first term, essentially making it only her second term.
AZ Lawmakers are baffle that she is seeking the notion.
But the Arizona Constitution says otherwise, “No member of the executive department shall hold that office for more than two consecutive terms….” Article 5, section 1. Voters amended this law by a proposition, 107 in 1992.
Her spokesman was not available for comment, Mathew Benson. Currently, Brewer is battling out with the Obama administration over SB1070 and recently she gave him a warm welcome by jabbing her finger in his face on the airport tarmac, which made headlines world wide.
