Second-term Arizona governor Jan Brewer — best known for shoving her finger in President Obama's face, her unreasonably tough stance on immigration, and, more recently, vetoing her state's anti-gay bill — will not run for reelection, the Arizona Republic reports. Though Arizona's constitution limits governors to two terms, Brewer, who was appointed to her initial term after Janet Napolitano left to become Secretary of Homeland Security, had recently indicated that she might argue that she was eligible for a third, since she was not elected the first time around. But, she said on Monday, "There does come a time to pass the torch of leadership. And after competing this term in office, I will be doing just that." This probably does not mean that Arizona will get any less crazy, though.
