Even in Kansas, at least Lawrence Kansas... we were willing to boycott. Even if it included the entire state of AZ where many of our snowbirds flee. I can not even understand the religious basis of this.

Why? Did the Party have some words with her?

Her party passed the bill. There was uproar about it across the nation. She met with opponents and proponents before she vetoed it.

So nobody really knows why she went against the majority of her party? Did the uproar make a difference?

I've heard that the Republican party leadership is starting to back off of anti-gay measure, since it's hurting the "friendly" image they're trying to project.

This is yet another of the all too many reasons I support the excellent work of the Freedom From Religion Foundation. http://ffrf.org/news/action/item/20177-brewer-should-veto-%E2%80%98religious-wrongs%E2%80%99-bill
