(CNN) – It's not clear who might try to succeed Jan Brewer as governor of Arizona next year, but chances are good that whoever it is won't be quite as flamboyant.
The finger-wagging, gun-loving politician, known as a firebrand who exhibits flashes of moderation, announced on Wednesday that she would "pass the torch of leadership" and not run for reelection. Her term ends in January.
Washington (CNN) - President Barack Obama kicked off two days of campaigning in Virginia by telling a boisterous crowd Friday that he kept his promise to bring change that helped middle-class families, and now it was time for them to work to re-elect him.
"Because of the values we share, I believe in you." Obama told the chanting, cheering supporters in a Virginia Beach school gymnasium. "And I hope you believe in me, because I've kept that promise, and I fought for you and I'm going to keep on fighting for you as long as I have a chance to be your president."
