Jan Brewer says she's open to being Donald Trump's vice president

Jan Brewer, the former governor of Arizona, announced on Sunday that she is willing to run on the Republican ticket alongside Donald Trump.

During an appearance Sunday on CNN's State of the Union, Brewer was shown a list of possible running mates for Trump, including Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich. Host Jake Tapper asked Brewer if she would be willing to be considered, and she answered in the affirmative. "Of course I would be," she said. "I would be willing to serve in any capacity that I could be of help with Donald on."

Brewer also said she doesn't think it's necessary for the presumptive Republican nominee to choose a woman as his vice president. "This woman thing has gotten way out of control, I believe," she said. "And I think it's been driven by the left."
