    The Republican National Committee held a three-day meeting for state chairmen at the Scottsdale Princess Resort this week. and as you can tell from an earlier post, I covered the Romney McCain luncheon for The Daily Beast.

    Just the day before, Joe Biden had visited Phoenix.  Michelle Obama is slated to visit Tucson in late April.  Dems hope to take Arizona, and it looks like GOP-ers are getting nervous. Arizona is a battleground state, that’s for sure.

    Each party needs to win over moderates and Latinos to win Arizona. And, since Romney has said he’d veto the  Dream Act and he approves of SB 1070, an awful lot of Anglo Republicans are going to have to vote to counter the Latino vote. Here’s the story I wrote.

    I also wrote a bit about Jan Brewer — now that she’s a national conservative celebrity, is she in line for consideration as Veep or for a cabinet post?
