McCain, Kyl endorse Brewer

Republican Senators John McCain and Jon Kyl are endorsing Gov. Jan Brewer in the Republican primary race for Arizona governor.

The senators on Monday issued a statement announcing their endorsement of Brewer.

With State Treasurer Dean Martin’s suspension of his campaign, Brewer now faces two challengers — Yavapai County businessman Buz Mills and political newcomer Matthew Jette (JET-ee)– in the Aug. 24 primary.

McCain is quoted in the statement as saying Brewer has consistently “stood up” for Arizona on such issues as border security and health care.

Kyl said in the joint statement that Brewer, in Kyl’s words, “has shown courage in fighting for the rights of Arizonans.”

Brewer previously endorsed McCain in his re-election bid.
