Former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer didn’t mince her words this week while discussing the 2016 election, calling Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton a “lying killer.”
The Republican also went out on a limb to insist Clinton will not win Arizona in the November election.

“The people want a fighter,” Brewer told KTAR-FM. “They’re tired of the lying killer, uh … Hillary Clinton and Bill Clintons of the world.”
Brewer described Republican nominee Donald Trump as “a candidate of a different color,” and said that while the opposition has been “baiting” him, she expects he will run a “much tighter” campaign going forward.
As for Arizona, a CBS News/YouGov poll taken at the beginning of the month shows Trump being ahead by 2 points, which is close in the reliable Red state.
When confronted over her stinging rhetoric by the media, Brewer took a page out of Democrat’s playbook to say she misspoke.
“I was trying to say Hillary Clinton,” she told Buzzfeed News. “It was a stumble of the tongue. Good grief.”
