Yes, that's outgoing Arizona Republican Gov. Jan Brewer with DefJam founder Russell Simmons.

Here's the back-story on this picture provided by Andrew Wilder, Brewer's Director of Communications: "They met at the Ritz-Carlton Phoenix on Friday. The governor was there attending an evening event. The two bumped into each other afterwards. Despite rumors, I can confirm that Governor Brewer does not plan to pursue a hip hop career after her term concludes. :)"
