Gov. Jan Brewer celebrated her birthday in a “safe port amidst a storm” Tuesday night at the Ahwatukee Republican Women’s meeting and encouraged those present to get active in helping Republicans take office.

Brewer was the keynote speaker at the group’s monthly meeting at the Grace Inn in Ahwatukee Foothills. She spoke about the challenges facing the country and urged people to get involved.

“I was always a grassroots kind of person,” Brewer said. “That’s where elections are won or lost. It’s all of you gals out there who are going to make a huge difference with this upcoming election. I know it’s hard work, but I know you feel the need and you feel the passion…

“There is a place and a part for each and every one of us. Over the next 40 days as we write the next great chapter of America, make no mistake, that it is the women of Ahwatukee and those like you around the country who are the true font of America’s prosperity and freedom not only at the federal level but right here at the local level as well. It will take each and every one of you working out in the community to make sure Arizona stays red.”

Brewer’s speech was applauded by the audience as she spoke about her conversations with federal leaders about protecting the border and SB 1070. She said President Barack Obama had the chance to secure the border during his presidency and failed.

“Failure is the hallmark of the Obama administration,” she said.

Brewer blew out the candles on a large cake and was given red mugs and a framed picture from the Republican National Convention to celebrate her 68th birthday. She told the audience it was probably the only birthday cake she would get and thanked them for their continued support.

“I love you all and thank you for your support and encouragement,” she said. “I could never do the job that I do without all of your support and encouragement. That’s what carries me on to the next day.”
