(Newser) – Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer threw her weight behind Mitt Romney today, just two days ahead of the Arizona primary that Romney is expected to win. Brewer appeared on Meet the Press, notes the National Journal, calling Romney "the man that can carry the day," and praising the candidate's business background. Though no stranger to controversy, Brewer had appeared poised to back the frontrunner, who has tacked hard to the right on illegal immigration, even backing Arizona's controversial laws, notes Politico. Romney already has the blessing of John McCain.
