As if the budget battle could get any weirder...
I can't afford to subscribe, so the details remain off-limits, but the Arizona Guardian is reporting that Gov. Jan Brewer is ready to unveil her own budget—and she's "preparing for war on the Legislature" with some kind of campaign blitz to persuade Republicans to support her. Huh. That sounds like the sort of thing that's just more likely to piss off lawmakers, rather than make them work with you.
Scarpinato is also on the trail.
