The rise of anti-abortion-rights OB-GYNs

In April, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signed a bill that makes it illegal for state colleges to fund medical residency programs that offer abortion training with state or federal money, including money paid by students as part of tuition or fees. But what began as a rare seed in a nationwide garden of abortion-defunding measures has blossomed into a national movement to reduce the number of medical professionals who are trained to provide abortions.

Arizona sues DOJ over medical marijuana

As every state with legal medical marijuana on the books now seems to have a letter from a U.S. Attorney saying, 'not so fast', Arizona Governor Jan Brewer has taken the whole thing one step beyond by filing suit against the United States Department of Justice in the hope of getting a judicial ruling that clarifies whether Arizona has the right to implement its medical marijuana law.

Arizona Guv Brewer to publish memoir on ‘battle to secure the...

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer is set to tell her side of the SB 1070 drama in a provocatively titled memoir due out in November. "Scorpions For Breakfast: My Fight Against Special Interests, Liberal Media and Cynical Politicos to Secure America's Border" is scheduled to be published in November by Broadside Books, a conservative imprint of HarperCollins Publishers.

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer announced today that the state will appeal lower court rulings blocking some parts of Arizona's famous--or infamous--SB 1070 all the way to The United States Supreme Court.

Guv Brewer vetoes TABOR bill in Ariz, cites ‘failed experiment’ in...

Controversial Republican Arizona Governor Jan Brewer gave a boost to opponents of Colorado's Taxpayer Bill of Rights when she vetoed a similar proposal in her state Thursday, saying "unreasonable spending limits" become irrelevant and a burden. She pointed to budget wrangling and overrides in Colorado as evidence that the nearly 20-year-old Taxpayer Bill of Rights experiment here is a failure.

Arizona bill to criminalize abortion if based on gender or race...

A bill criminalizing sex- and race-based abortion might soon make its way to the desk of Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, as the Arizona Senate approved the bill 21-5 Monday, following the House’s 40-18 vote back in February.

VIDEO: Hickenlooper as the anti-Scott Walker (or anti-Nikki Haley!)

Colorado Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper participated in an ABC News governors roundtable this weekend, where he talked with host Jake Tapper and Governors Deval Patrick (D-Mass.), Nikki Haley (R-S.C.) and Jan Brewer (R-Ariz.). The short segment spotlights the cross talk on events in Wisconsin, a combination of spin and willful non-engagement.

Arizona birther law gaining traction

Birthers, states rights fans, people who hate Pres. Obama and mainstream Republican leaders accustomed to waffling on birther questions will now be watching the Arizona legislature, where Republican lawmakers are again taking action to address a problem they see as inadequately addressed by the federal government. State Rep. Judy Burges introduced a bill last week requiring presidential candidates to submit an "original long-form birth certificate" in order to appear on the state ballot. For 2012, the bill would perhaps rule out the current President of the United States, and it would definitely rule out Panama military-base-born 2008 GOP presidential nominee Arizona Sen. John McCain and all of the many other natural-born American citizens (like me) who don't possess a long-form original birth certificate.
