Where in the world is Governor Jan Brewer?

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX -

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer's office says she'll be absent from the state nearly all this week but her spokesman won't say where she is.

Brewer spokesman Matthew Benson said in a brief email that Brewer is out of the state on official business and unavailable to participate in the general election canvass Monday morning.

Benson's email adds, "That is all I can disclose at this time."

We spoke to Matthew Benson in person.

"I understand the interest in the governor's whereabouts and we'll disclose that as soon as we're able, but at this time I'm just not at liberty to say anything more than that she's out of state on official business," said Benson.

"If she's out of the state on official business, we need to know why and where and what she's doing. Especially if she's going to miss something as important as the canvass, the public needs to know where the governor is and how much it's costing us," said Democratic House Minority Leader Chad Campbell.

Under the Arizona Constitution, Secretary of State Ken Bennett is acting governor because Brewer is out of the state.

Bennett says his office received the customary notification of Brewer's absence late Friday.

Bennett spokesman Matt Roberts says the notification said Brewer would be gone Sunday to Saturday.

On Tuesday morning, a FOX 10 viewer reached out to us saying the Governor was visiting her grandson on Monday and sent us a picture.

The viewer's grandson is Mason Steill and he's a soldier recovering from injuries.  He is currently being treated at Walter Reed National Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.

This is a developing story.  Stay with FOX 10 News for updates.
