Buz Mills suspends his campaign for Arizona governor

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) - Buz Mills' campaign manager says the candidate for the Republican nomination for Arizona governor is "suspending" his campaign.

Mills campaign manager Camilla Strongin says Mills is halting his campaigning because the campaign is now focused on immigration and border security, not the jobs and budget issues that drew Mills into the race.

State Treasurer Dean Martin also suspended his candidacy Friday. That leaves Republican Gov. Jan Brewer and political newcomer Matthew Jette (JETT-ee) as the only active campaigners.
