Gov. Brewer backs Romney, says he 'can carry the day'

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) endorsed Mitt Romney for the Republican presidential nomination ahead of her state's Tuesday primary.

Appearing on NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday, Brewer said Romney would give Republicans the best chance to defeat President Obama in his bid for reelection in the fall.

"I have had my debate there in Arizona and I have looked over all the wonderful people that have put them up for nomination and I have decided that I'm going to publicly endorse Mitt Romney," Brewer said during the interview.

"I think he's the man that can carry the day," she continued. "I'm going to get out there and work as hard as I know how to make sure that he wins Arizona, and work in other places of our country to see that he wins those places too."
