Jan Brewer


22nd Republican Governor of Arizona. Brewer became governor in 2009, succeeding former Gov. Janet Napolitano (D) after she resigned to join the cabinet of President Barack Obama. Brewer was serving as Arizona Secretary of State at the time of Napolitano's departure. Since Arizona does not have a lieutenant governor, the secretary of state is second in the line of succession to the governorship. Brewer assumed the role on January 20, 2009. On November 2, 2010, Brewer was elected to her first full term, effective through January 5, 2015. She was succeeded by former Arizona Treasurer Doug Ducey (R). Brewer began her political career in 1982 when she was elected to the Arizona House of Representatives. Serving in that chamber until 1987, Brewer then joined the Arizona State Senate for the next ten years. In 1996, Brewer was elected the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, serving as Chair in 1998 and 2001. She was next elected Arizona Secretary of State in 2002, where she served until being elevated to the governorship in 2009.
