Jan Brewer isn't ruling out running for a third term as Gov of AZ
would not rule out a potential third term in office.
In an interview with The Arizona Republic, the governor said supporters are still encouraging her to research whether a third term would be viable. At least one political adviser close to Brewer acknowledged that numerous aides and other supporters are trying to rally her for a third term.
The state Constitution allows elected officials to serve two terms. The question is: What's a term?
"I have been encouraged by people in the community -- people whom I respect, and others whom I don't even know -- wanting me to look into what really constitutes a term," Brewer said, adding that the last four years have been "rough" and tremendously difficult.

"It's not something that is consuming her time," he said late Friday.

3. She can't run again,
No member of the executive department after serving the maximum number of terms, which shall include any part of a term served, may serve in the same office until out of office for no less than one full term.
She may challenge, but she will lose.
