Former Arizona governor and Trump supporter Jan Brewer referred to Hillary Clinton as a “lying killer” and affirmed that Democrats would not flip her home state in November.
Making her weekly call-in Tuesday to Mac & Gaydos on KTAR News, Brewer said that if Democrats wanted to pump campaign money into the state economy that would be “good for us,” but they had no hopes of actually turning Arizona blue.
“People want a fighter. They’re tired of the lying killer Hillary Clinton and Bill Clintons of the world,” she said.
Asked if Trump could stay on message, she said she agreed that he could do a better job shifting from his bombastic primary style to talking more about jobs and the economy. His antagonists had been “baiting” him, she said, causing him to “bite.” But she predicted a “much tighter” campaign in the future.
Brewer was also pressed about Trump’s frequent assertions that the election would be rigged and that he seemed optimistic about returning to his pre-campaign life. “It sounds like he’s getting ready to lose,” one host said.
“Well, he is a candidate of a different kind, isn’t he?” Brewer said. “A candidate of a different color.”
