Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer Downplays SB 1070 Hearing

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer downplayed Tuesday’s congressional hearing on her state’s tough immigration law, saying “I don’t think many people get C-SPAN3.”

Brewer made the comment to Arizona political journalist Brahm Resnik at an NBC television studio in Washington, D.C. Resnik posted the quote on Twitter a short time later.

Here are Resnik’s tweets:

Editors note: This post has been updated to reflect Brewer was talking about a congressional hearing and not Wednesday’s US Supreme Court hearing.
