A former Arizona Republican Party chairman says the possibility of Arizona being the site for GOP presidential candidates remains on the table as Gov. Jan Brewers considers moving up the state’s 2012 primary.

Former Chairman Randy Pullen says “that’s pretty much it” when asked Thursday whether additional topics other than siting a debate in Arizona are being discussed as alternatives to moving up the primary date.

Brewer disclosed in July that she’s considering moving up the primary from Feb. 28 to Jan. 31 to get the state and its concerns more attention. Her office said Monday that having GOP candidates debate in Arizona might achieve the same purpose.

Brewer faces a Saturday deadline to under state law to act if she decides to advance the primary to Jan. 31.
