Arizona Governor Tweets Photo of Herself Vetoing Bill

VIDEO: Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer Vetoes Religious Freedom Bill

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer tweeted a photo of herself vetoing a controversial bill that was designed to allow business owners to deny service to gays - just moments after she made a televised announcement that she was killing the legislation.

"My agenda is to sign into law legislation that advances Arizona," she said Wednesday night.

Earlier in the week, prominent Republicans took to Twitter to urge Brewer to kill the bill. They joined a growing chorus of politicians and businesses such as the NFL and Apple that were calling for a veto.
