Arizona Republican Gov. Jan Brewer is headed to the general election after handily winning a GOP primary marked by a surge in her popularity after she signed a tough law targeting illegal immigration.

Brewer, who inherited the job last year after former Gov. Janet Napolitano became Homeland Security secretary, will meet Democrat Terry Goddard in the November race.

Goddard, Arizona's attorney general, was unopposed for his party's nomination.

In the GOP primary Tuesday, Brewer defeated little-known moderate Matthew Jette (JETT-ee) and Buz Mills, a businessman whose name remained on the ballot even though he suspended his campaign in July.

While Brewer's role in the immigration issue — and the controversial law she signed in April — dominated the primary, the general election campaign is expected to increasingly focus on the economy.
