Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer expected to veto "religious freedom" bill

CNN is learning that Arizona Governor Jan Brewer is expected to veto the "religious freedom" bill - which many say is anti-gay. The legislation would allow businesses to refuse service to certain individuals if it goes against their religious beliefs.

In just the past couple of days Brewer has faced intensifying pressure from CEOs, politicians and even the NFL to kill the bill.

Mitt Romney tweeted this afternoon:

Governor Brewer: veto of Senate Bill 1062 is right.

CNN Miguel Marquez has the latest OutFront.

    On a segment about the Arizona bill that would allow for discrimination; twice Erin's guest mentioned that the bill is safe because it (discrimination) has to be part of a proven strong held belief. That you could not just make up religious dogma out of thin air and implied Christianity was more legitimate than made up religions. I am surprised she did not take him to task.
