Jan Brewer Declines to Participate in Two Candidate Forums

Categories: Election 2010

Following Governor Jan Brewer's jaw-dropping performance in the last gubernatorial debate, she reaffirmed her vow to not participate in more debates -- despite challenges from her Democratic opponent, Terry Goddard.

Last month, we called Governor Jan Brewer's campaign to throw her handlers a hypothetical: if the other candidates scheduled a debate or candidate forum or any sort of public engagement featuring her and her opponents, would Jan show up. As usual, nobody got back to us, but today we got our answer.


Brewer's opponents, Goddard, Larry Gist, and Barry Hess, will each participate in two candidate forums today. Brewer won't be in attendance.

The Arizona Women Lawyers Association is holding a Candidates Forum today. It begins at 11:30 a.m. at the Wyndham Hotel in Phoenix. Goddard, Gist, and Hess will all be there. Jan Won't be.

She claims she has a scheduling conflict.

Jan's a busy lady so it's a good thing there's another candidate forum today so she can "did what's right" and give voters a chance to see her debate her opponents.

ASU's Undergraduate Student Government also is hosting a Governor's Candidate Forum today. It starts at 7 p.m. in the Memorial Union. Goddard, Gist, and Hess will all be there. Jan won't be -- no "scheduling conflict" here, Jan just said no.

Brewer's lead over Goddard has narrowed -- if you believe recent poll numbers -- so you'd think Jan would want to get her face out there to try to seal the deal with under two weeks until election day. It's almost as though she's afraid to debate. Wonder why? See below -- and keep in mind: this woman currently runs this entire state.

She is too busy. She has lots of work to do on her pet pork project, the Arizona Centennial Museum.

Goddard's a damned queer. There are headless corpses littering the desert in proximity to Phoenix. The federal government has sold us out for a pound of Methamphetamine. The drug cartels are shooting (read flesh wounding) our sheriff's deputies. We're being invaded with drug smugglers who seem to have a talent for spontaneous evaporation when the cops come near. Toddlers are used to smuggle pounds of weed concealed in their diapers. 750,000 Mexicans cross the border each day, blasting with their assault rifles any American who dares try to stop them; once here they grab a blonde, impregnate her, and claim amnesty due to the impending birth, then soak up our welfare, tag our block walls, and then overrun the car washes or create a traffic hazard at the Home Depot...And they are all dirty and diseased just like Sheriff Joe says. Right, Sheriff Joe ?!?!?Fuckin eh, right !!!!I think the cadavorous Jan Brewer has said sufficient.And Jan... cover up that damned cleavage of yours.

I just got a call from a friend who works for DPS. The rumor there is that Mrs. Brewer thinks she is going to debates and is being driven by DPS personnel. They apparently just drive in circles for hours and then lie to her about where she has been when she wakens. She sees it as just another day, diding what she always did best. Learning to govern. Scrapping and such. Her public statements about not attending are whispered into her ear set and she repeats what she is told. Her microphone back to DPS Hqs. is hidden by a band aid.

Just another rumor...

Pass.
Pass.

In her defense, scleroderma takes A LOT out of a person.

1070 does not make a Governor. Jan Brewer is the "Run and Hide" candidate for Governor.

I doubt I would ever vote for Jan Brewer at this point. However, if she wants a chance at my vote, she will have to did a debate.

It's really too bad, and a disservice to all that the Womens Lawyer Association failed to invite either myself (Libertarian Nominee, Barry Hess), or Green Party Nominee, Larry Gist to attend the forum. They make themselves look like a biased joke on any who might think them a worthwhile organization.

Shut Up, Jan

The best thing this worthless, racist, opportunistic, uninformed, lying, wrinkled tit showing old "Medussa of The Desert" dunb-ass cow can do is KEEP HER FUCKING MOUTH SHUT

Brewer Speaks! Arizona is a Hell Hole and it doesn't matter who votes it only matters who certifies the vote! Go get a "broom" caged, provisionalized, foreclosed, relocated ballot voters at best. Russell Pearce, John Kavanaugh, Andrew Thomas, Sheriff Joe and all those MVD, DES, VA, SSI Hendershot computers has the Arizona people stuck in Jan's Economic Holocaust TEAM GOP Land. Ken Bennett the next "broom" in from the woods Lt. Gov. has waited a long time for the GETBACK Russell Pearce Jim Crow Section 1070 PAYBACK! The YOU LIE! YOU LIE! Arpaio Swatpoint SB1070 Gunpoint is just waiting in wings to get their hands on someone else's mom, dad, son, daughter, and their neighbor under arrest and then FORCED to attest unto Russell Pearce in that barn in Kansas where the sheep said no, Dorothy and Toto said no too!

No need for Brewer to participate in a candidate forum.

She's going to win easily and you libs are going to cry. Ha, ha!

What's really a disgrace is that the voters in this state are so stupid she'll probably get elected.

I guess the fighter and scrapper comment in her South Mountain campaign ad is also a lie then.

There's a valid reason for her lack of visibility. Pearce is tied up in Kansas trying to write more racist legislation while Arpaio is busy meeting with lawyers and overseeing the biggest document shredding party since Enron.

Pretty hard for the marionette to perform without the puppeteer(s)......

You've got a typo in the last line... It should say that Jan currently RUINS the entire state...

Don't be offended. I would imagine the forum was put together as a way to show the world that Mrs. Brewer is NOT the scrapper she purports herself to be. I wasn't able to attend the forum but I hope there was an empty chair with her name visible. Those of us who really care about the outcome of the voting know about all the candidates, Mr. Hess. But there apparently aren't a lot of us in Arizona who have the ability or energy to read or have independent thoughts.

If she does it's because of people like you who are too small in their "sports team" thinking to realize that it's not about 'your' team winning--it's about the future of Arizona and the fate of your children. Thanks for displaying your lack of depth. As a candidate, I'd rather face 'evil' than absolute, and demonstrated incompetence. 21 months on her test drive, and she hasn't done a single thing to help the state except raise taxes ($70 MM in raised property taxes and Prop 100, which only extended paychecks for a few and didn't do a thing to improve or finance education) and make AZ a laughingstock. If that's what a 'conservative' or a 'Republican' is, you have my sympathy......

I'm a conservative, but I'll take an "intelligent" Democrat over an idiot conservative (pawn) any day of the week.
