Arizona Governor Jan Brewer endorses Romney for President

 

On NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday morning, Arizona governor Jan Brewer endorsed Mitt Romney for President.  Brewer’s endorsement has long been seen as a shoe waiting to drop in the Arizona race, which had tightened up considerably, leaving Romney only a few points ahead of Rick Santorum in some recent polls.  NBC’s most recent poll, however, had Romney with a comfortable lead in Arizona: Romney 43 percent, Santorum 27, Gingrich 16, Paul 11.

Brewer is also a figure of national prominence in conservative circles after some high-profile battles with the Obama Administration over immigration, a problem the Administration has sued her state for its attempts to address.

MSNBC reports:

Brewer said she viewed Romney as the most electable candidate to challenge President Obama this fall, and that she made her conclusion after meeting with the candidates and after a debate this week in Arizona.

“I have decided that I am going to publicly endorse Mitt Romney. I think he’s the man that can carry the day,” Brewer said. “I think Mitt is by far the person who can go in and win.”

Brewer also said she thinks the upcoming Super Tuesday primaries on March 6 will effectively settle the nomination.
