February 26, 2012 18:49

WASHINGTON - Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, who had a finger-pointing confrontation with President Barack Obama last month, on Sunday endorsed Mitt Romney's bid to become the Republican nominee to challenge Obama in the Nov. 6 US election.

"He has that pro-business background and he has that political history that I think ... would serve America the best," Brewer said of Romney, who squares off with rival Rick Santorum in Republican presidential primaries on Tuesday in Arizona and Michigan.

Appearing on NBC's "Meet the Press," the Republican Brewer announced her endorsement of Romney, saying: "I think he is the man who can carry the day."

Romney, a former private equity executive and Massachusetts governor, leads in polls in Arizona. Polls show a tight race with Santorum in Michigan.
