Former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer is throwing her support behind Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Trump's campaign announced Brewer's endorsement Saturday. In a statement, Brewer called Trump a "Washington outsider" who will follow the people's will. She says Trump would secure the border and defend workers deprived of jobs by people who are in the U.S. illegally.

Trump says Brewer's endorsement is an honor.

The Arizona Secretary of State's Office says 3.2 million people are now registered to vote.

There were 45,000 more registered voters in the second-to-last quarter of 2015.
