Brewer And Obama To Meet Once Again On Airport Tarmac

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) will once again greet President Barack Obama on the tarmac at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport ahead of a speech on the economy and housing Tuesday, according to The Republic.

The governor plans to speak to the president about getting the area of the Yarnell Hill fire to be declared a federal disaster, a spokesperson told the paper.

Their last face-to face meeting on an airport tarmac made national headlines in January 2012 after the governor pointed her finger at the president, prompting some debate about what caused the now infamous confrontation.
