PHOENIX — Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has decided against up the state's presidential primary in 2012 by nearly a month to Jan. 31.

Brewer tells The Associated Press on Friday that she's leaving open her options of still moving the Feb. 28 primary date to an earlier date. She says the state has been tentatively allotted a Republican presidential candidates' debate by the Republican National Committee.

Saturday was the deadline for Brewer to act to move the primary to Jan. 31.

The Republican has said she wants Arizona to have a louder voice in the nominating process and that holding the primary earlier could help focus a spotlight on such concerns as illegal immigration and border security.

Arizona risked losing presidential delegates as punishment for the decision.
