That's apparently Governor Jan Brewer's new tactic after being shown to be inarticulate and unprepared for her first debate. She has now stated that she will no longer participate in gubernatorial debates and that she only did the first one for the money (public funds for her campaign). (all links from TPM unless otherwise specified)
Of course, facing people who ask questions would require her to answer to her false claims about beheadings in the desert. Because when she's not tied to a chair, she can just ignore it (azcentral.com) and walk away (tucsoncitizen.com)
This appears to be the future of the Republican Party - no direct answers, avoid the media directly but use them for their talking points. We see it from Palin to Angle to Paul, and now Brewer appears to be doing the same thing.
It astounds me that people support these candidates. Jan Brewer has a 20 point lead according to the Fox News clip on that last article. That's shocking.
