Arizona Gov. Brewer leaving legacy of battling Washington

FILE - In this Jan. 13, 2014, file photo, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer gives her State of the State address in the Arizona House of Representatives at the Arizona Capitol in Phoenix. Brewer fought President Barack Obama on immigration and border security for most of her tenure, earning national prominence by enacting tough laws that were mainly struck down by the courts and famously wagging her finger in the president’s face during a meeting on an airport tarmac. But the Republican governor leaves a more nuanced legacy after nearly six years in office, one that saw her inherit a massive deficit at the height of the Great Recession, patch it up and push for economic recovery only to see Arizona sink back into a deficit as she prepares to step down Jan. 5, 2015.
