Brewer Cancels Appearance at Mercer Fundraiser

Posted By on Tue, Sep 11, 2012 at 5:00 PM

Looks like Gov. Jan Brewer won't be helping Gabby Mercer raise funds this week. Talking Points Memo reports:


Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has bailed on a Republican congressional candidate who landed in hot water last month after saying Middle Eastern immigrants should be banned from the U.S.

Phoenix television station KTVK reported on Tuesday that Brewer (R) abruptly dropped out of a fundraiser she was scheduled to headline for Gabriela Saucedo Mercer, the party’s nominee in southern Arizona’s 3rd Congressional District.

“The governor will not be attending,” Brewer’s spokesman Matt Benson told the station on Monday. Benson declined to say why. He said Brewer was not rescinding her endorsement and may help the candidate in the future, but he offered no specific plans.
