Associated Press reports: "Gov. Janet Napolitano [D -- Arizona] plans to visit Salt Lake City this week to meet with leaders of the Mormon Church to learn more about the faith shared by hundreds of thousands of Arizonans." A spokesman for Governor Napolitano said, " the trip evolved from Napolitano's realization over the summer that she didn't know much about the church and its structure and activities in Arizona." Subsequent discussions within the Governor's Office "having to do with the fact that we have so many people in Arizona who are members of the faith" led to phone calls between church officials and the governor's office. "No meetings are planned with Utah state officials, this is all church-related."
