Arizona Governor Jan Brewer didn’t attend the Sunday night White House dinner the president held for the nation’s governors, claiming other obligations.

The Huffington Post reported Saturday the Arizona Republican was overheard telling her staff she declined the invitation because did not want to participate in a “social” event.

Despite Brewer’s prickly history with Obama, she insists her absence tonight was not a matter of disrespect. On NBC’s “Meet the Press” this morning, the governor said she had other commitments and confirmed she would be present for the formal policy meeting at the White House Monday.
