Appalachian Trail, part two? Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has been out of state for a mysterious work trip for nearly a week, but her aides will not say where she has gone. Brewer missed an event on Monday, and Secretary of State Ken Bennett had to sign election documents during the event as acting governor. A spokesperson for Bennett said that the office had received the customary notification that Brewer would be gone from Sunday to Saturday but had no additional information on her whereabouts. Brewer’s spokesperson said only that the governor was out of state on official business, adding, “That is all I can disclose at this time.”
