Brewer Endorses Romney

Governor Jan Brewer made the announcement Sunday on Meet the Press. The governor said she has been watching all the campaigns but was waiting until seeing the candidates personally at last week's debate in Mesa.

Brewer said Romney handles himself very well.  "But more than that," she said, "he has that pro-business background.
