Gov. Brewer Says " Romney Is The Right Man", because He Isn't Black.
With Mitt Romney's victory in the Arizona GOP primary on Tuesday, Jan Brewer became the first Republican governor to endorse the winning candidate in his or her own state.
Brewer, who became the governor of the Grand Canyon State in 2009, announced her support for the former Massachusetts governor on NBC's "Meet the Press" earlier this week.
"I think he's the man that can carry the day," she said Sunday. "Mitt is by far the person that can go in and win."
According to a PPP poll conducted earlier in February, Brewer's endorsement could have been a decisive factor for some voters. About 25 percent of likely Republican voters polled said they would be more likely to vote for a candidate who had Brewer's stamp of approval.
