Brewer shoots down Goddard's call for a half-dozen debates:
"The voters of Arizona know who Governor Jan Brewer is and her record of accomplishments over the past 28 years.
"Similarly, the voters of Arizona know who Terry Goddard is and his 30-year record of failures: Wrong on Prop 200, wrong on SB1070, wrong on Obamacare, wrong on English Language Learners, just to name a few.
"Now Mr. Goddard wants to weigh in on the issues. Where has he been? For over a year, the Governor has challenged Goddard to provide a definitive plan to help resolve Arizona's fiscal crisis. She challenged him to join her in supporting Prop 100. His response? 'It’s not my job.'
"Terry Goddard is Obama's Arizona apostle.
"Governor Brewer will participate in the televised debate sponsored by the Clean Elections Commission on September 1st. The scheduling of any possible future debates will be revisited after that time. In the meantime, we anticipate that Mr. Goddard will use his campaign funds to try to redefine 30-year record of failure. We look forward to seeing his TV commercials in the weeks to come."
