  • Brewer, budget riding on outcome of Prop. 100

    While today’s special election on Proposition 100 seems to have garnered more attention than most, nobody is watching the results more closely than Gov. Jan Brewer, who has tied her political future to the temporary one-cent sales tax increase.
