Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer made a gaffe in a live NBC interview at the Republican National Convention.

Saying "Obama" when she meant to say "Romney," she accidentally threw her support behind the incumbent.

She said: "I know that if President Obama is elected in November, which I hope that he is, that he will be able to come together with all of us and come up with a solution and I believe he will secure our borders and therefore we can resolve all those other issues. It's a simple matter."
