Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer is going to Las Vegas to check out the Republican presidential candidates’ debate Tuesday evening.

Brewer spokesman Matthew Benson says Brewer’s brief trip is at the invitation of CNN, a sponsor of the debate along with a Republican leadership group.

CNN also has agreed to televise a Dec. 1 debate to be held in Arizona for the Republican presidential candidates, and Benson says Brewer will be able to look behind the scenes at the Nevada event.

Benson says a specific location for the Arizona debate has not yet been chosen.

  1. Who’s paying for this trip? Then there’s security to pay for. Brewhaha is going to VEGAS and the debate happens to be there.

  2. Good exercise for the Gov, pehaps she will learn how to talk coherently by watching others. Are taxpayers picking up the Sin City tab?
