Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, who has endorsed Mitt Romney in the presidential race, says a long, drawn-out battle for the Republican nomination is “probably not a good thing,” but the camp backing the former Massachusetts governor is “ready for the long haul.” Brewer also told Fox News Tuesday night that Romney’s convincing Arizona win restores his front-runner status.
 
“Well, it’s a big win for Mitt Romney tonight, and so we’re very, very thrilled that we were able to deliver this state and all our delegate votes to him,” Brewer said. “You know, I’m just relieved that the people of Arizona realize that Mitt Romney is the right man for this time. And I think as we move forward through this process that the rest of the country will see that he is the leader that we need.”

Fox News’ Bret Baier noted despite Romney’s wins in Arizona and his home state of Michigan, there are still 67 percent of the delegates left on the table and asked Brewer whether she believed the continued race hurts the party and the nominee.

“Yes, I do — I think that it’s probably not a good thing, but I will tell you that the Romney team, myself included, we’re ready for the long haul — and in the end, I think that he will be the victor,” Brewer said.

Fox News’ Megyn Kelly noted that Romney won overwhelmingly with those concerned about illegal immigration, but questioned whether his tough stance on deportation would hurt him beyond Arizona.

“Well, I think that in Arizona, of course, we’re a border state — so it’s very, very important to us,” Brewer said. “But besides that, I think that might be some people’s very top priority, but they’re also very, very concerned about the economy and jobs — you know, those issues that are facing our whole country.

“And I think that they realize that Mitt Romney is the man that can beat President Obama,” she continued. “We’ve had nothing but promises and broken promises from President Obama, and now we are ready for a change.”
