The big question is, if Napolitano does decide to leave, would Brewer run for re-election? One would think that this would give her a significant advantage over the other challengers. Would someone from the party step in and get people in line?
Jim Pederson's name has been thrown around as a potential candidate for Governor as he is still making waves sponsoring the latest state land trust initiative as well as donating to the redistricting initiative as well.
Arizona Report is saying that the Kool-Aid man is interested as well, but who knows his party affiliation.
Here is the updated short list:
Secretary of State Jan Brewer
State Treasurer Dean Martin
Republican Party Chairman Randy Pullen
Secretary of Transportation Mary Peters
John Munger, Former State Chairman, RNC Committee
Attorney General Terry Goddard
Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon
Jim Pederson, former State Chairman, Candidate for US Senate
