PHOENIX (AP) - Gov. Jan Brewer says she's not taking any further steps to have legislators consider election-law changes but that it doesn't mean she likes an initiative measure to dramatically change Arizona's primary system.
Brewer and Republican legislative leaders had agreed to have a special session this week on a possible referendum on a related proposal. But that plan fell apart late Friday, and Brewer says she has nothing in the works now.
The initiative would allow voters to vote for any candidate on the primary ballot. It also would advance the primary's top two finishers to the general election regardless of party affiliation.
Brewer says she's concerned that the changes would weaken the current party-based election system. She supported requiring candidates to disclose their party affiliations, if any.
