Gov. Brewer says 'no' to more debates

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R), whose first debate with Democratic state Attorney General Terry Goddard (D) featured an agonizingly long period of silence after Brewer stumbled in her opening statement, said Thursday she won't debate her opponent again ahead of November.

"I certainly will take my message in a different venue out to the people of Arizona," Brewer told Arizona's Capitol Media Services. 

Brewer argued both she and Goddard have been in public service long enough for their records to be well known among Arizona voters and suggested no other debates were necessary. 

The governor also said additional debates would only serve to help Goddard. "Why would I want to give Terry a chance to redefine himself?" she said.
