“He’s our man!”
Gov. Jan Brewer in Washington, D.C. for the National Governors Association (NGC) conference, will skip the Obama’s White House Black-tie dinner soiree tonight. She used her time in D.C. to a different advantage, appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” to endorse GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney. “He’s the man that can carry the day and I’m going to get out there and work as hard as I can for Romney’s election,” Brewer said.
When asked yesterday whether she would attend tonight’s dinner, Gov. Brewer drolly responded, “I’m not. I’ve just decided I wasn’t going to be going because I had some other commitments I had to attend to.”
Brewer, who dined at the White House last year and will attend the policy discussions centered on economic issues with other governors and Obama Monday, laughed when asked to identify her scheduling conflict.
Brewer and Obama have had a stormy relationship since each took office in 2009, intensified by Obama’s decision to sue Arizona over our state’s nationally copied and widely supported law dealing with illegal immigration, known as SB 1070. The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear the case Arizona v. United States.
