Does Jan Brewer intend to run for a 3rd term even though against their constitution?

Just saw a bit about this on Rachel Maddow (watching tivo from Tuesday)

Her term ends January 2014.

It seems quite clear in their constitution that she cannot run for Governor in

Section 1. A. The executive department shall consist of the governor, secretary of state, state treasurer, attorney general, and superintendent of public instruction, each of whom shall hold office for a term of four years beginning on the first Monday of January, 1971 next after the regular general election in 1970. No member of the executive department shall hold that office for more than two consecutive terms. This limitation on the number of terms of consecutive service shall apply to terms of office beginning on or after January 1, 1993. 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.


It's quite clear that brain fart can't run and be elected for Governor in 2013.

1. Constitution? She don't need no stinkin' Constitution!

She probably feels she's above the law.
