Governor Janet Napolitano is not ruling out running for office again one day. Its not clear if she was insinuating that she would come back to Arizona to run for something, or if she was talking about national politics.
The latest rumor is that she is keeping her Arizona residence and voter registration so she can mount a campaign against Senator Jon Kyl in 2012. If you recall, Napolitano pal and former Democratic Party Chairman Jim Pedersen tried unsuccessfully to unseat Kyl in 2006.
The question is, why would she then allow her public calendar to be so empty if she eventually wants to come back? As we mentioned before, she only had one event this week. However, Benson updated the story to mention that she had 5 events last year, and 13 events her first year in office over the same week.
