Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) issued a proclamation this evening establishing the dates for the primary and general election to replace former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D) in the Tucson-area 8th district.
The primary will be held on April 17, and the special election will be on June 12. Both dates are Tuesdays.
A number of other Republicans and Democrats are being discussed as possible candidates in what is expected to be a very competitive special election.
