PHOENIX — Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer says she won't seek a third term in office.

Brewer ended months of speculation about whether she might challenge a provision of the Arizona Constitution that limits officeholders to two terms in office. Brewer completed the term of former Gov. Janet Napolitano when she took a job in the Obama administration in 2009, then won a full term in 2010.

Legal experts say it would have been a long shot to challenge the constitution and run again.

The 69-year-old Brewer made the announcement at a school where she boasted of her accomplishments on issues such as education and the economy.
