McSally Confirms More Judges To Gut Pre-Existing Condition Coverage Protections

This week, McSally has already voted to confirm 3 more anti-health care and anti-choice judges to lifetime appointments


PHOENIX — This week, Sen. Martha McSally has already voted to confirm three more anti-health care and anti-choice judges to lifetime appointments on the federal bench. This comes after McSally last week voted to confirm Michael Truncale — who, like McSally, has attacked earned benefits programs and advocated gutting pre-existing condition coverage protections — to a lifetime appointment. And it’s just the latest example of McSally putting her partisan politics and special interest backers ahead of Arizonans.

Here’s a look at the anti-health care and anti-choice judges that Sen. McSally has voted to confirm this week:

Howard Nielson, Jr. —

Daniel Collins —


Stephen Clark — 

  • A Clark-affiliated group not only attacked Roe v. Wade as “bad law” but even compared it to the reprehensible Dred Scott Supreme Court decision, in which the Court denied citizenship and constitutional rights to Black Americans.

Week after week, Martha McSally keeps voting to give lifetime appointments to judges who share her record of siding with corporate special interests over people and fighting against Americans’ health care access.

Arizonans deserve a Senator who will work for them, and Martha McSally keeps putting partisan politics and her corporate special interest backers first in Washington, at the expense of hardworking Arizonans.
