Gov. Jan Brewer is touting Arizona's economic comeback to publishers and editors attending the National Newspaper Association's convention.

Brewer addressed the group Friday morning at a Phoenix resort and urged them to tell their readers about what she calls the "Arizona comeback." She spoke of the $3 billion state deficit she faced when she took office five years ago and how the state ended this year with a surplus and a $450 million rainy day fund.

She touted her efforts to cut red tape and new regulations, rein in what she called wasteful and unsustainable spending, and trim the state's workforce to the second-lowest per capita of any state.

She also praised the newspaper industry for educating the public, holding government accountable and doing its job with compassion.
