Jan Brewer Fundraises Off Tarmac Encounter With Obama

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) is seeking to fill her political action committee's coffers with a new fundraising effort based on her recent high-profile encounter with President Barack Obama on a Phoenix airport tarmac.

"When I met President Obama this week, I really wasn't pointing at him. I was telling him, 'You have ONE more year!' The President needs to be reminded that he is the President of the FEDERAL REPUBLIC and not a KING lording over state governors," Brewer writes in Jan PAC's new ask, beside a now-famous picture of the governor wagging her finger in Obama's face.

Last week, Brewer greeted Obama as he disembarked Air Force One. The two reportedly "spoke intensely for a few minutes," with Obama unhappy with Brewer's description of an earlier meeting between the two written in a book she released last year. Her book, "Scorpions for Breakfast," has seen a monumental increase in sales since the exchange.

Obama has claimed the incident was "not a big deal," while Brewer said that it proved the president was "thin-skinned."

In the release, Brewer also takes aim at Obama for his administration's opposition to Arizona's controversial immigration law, a position put on display last year when the Department of Justice sued the state. Brewer has also mounted an unsuccessful lawsuit against the Obama administration. The law will be ruled on by the Supreme Court later this year.

"We deserve results over rhetoric, but this is a President who had the audacity to sue me and Arizona in my efforts to protect our country from illegal immigration!" Brewer writes.

Jan PAC was created last year with the goal of supporting conservative, pro-immigration enforcement candidates for federal office.
