Today in Unlikely News: Jan Brewer, 2016 Presidential Contender

Posted By on Mon, Dec 3, 2012 at 3:00 PM

The Range still considers it too early to start talking about 2016, but we're going to break our embargo to note this nugget in a HuffPo story today:


Brewer has also been included in a list of Republicans who may be positioning themselves for a presidential run in 2016. Politico reported on Monday that she had met with billionaire casino mogul and powerful GOP donor Sheldon Adelson during a recent trip to Las Vegas.

C'mon, seriously? All due respect: As the GOP looks around for a more viable national candidate, we don't imagine that Jan Brewer fits the bill any more than the Project White House candidates do. What are these people thinking? That she'll somehow help win over the Latino vote?

BTW, the HuffPo article in question notes that Brewer didn't exactly draw a crowd to her keynote address at the Western Regional Governors Association winter meeting:

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) played something of a host this weekend as her colleagues convened for the Western Governors Association's annual winter meeting in Paradise Valley, Ariz. When it came time for her to deliver her keynote address, however, most of her fellow governors were nowhere to be found.

As 3TV News reports, only two of the 19 governors gathered at the conference were in attendance as Brewer spoke on Saturday night. The two governors present, Colorado's John Hickenlooper (D) and Utah's Gary Herbert (R), serve as vice chairman and chairman of the Western Governors Association.
