Republican Rampage on Roe: Masters Edition 
PHOENIX — This week, we’re breaking down the Arizona GOP Senate primary candidates’ war on Roe v. Wade and outlining exactly how out of touch each of these candidates are when it comes to Arizonans’ access to reproductive care. After our earlier overview of Brnovich’s career-long attack on reproductive rights, we’re turning to Silicon Valley golden boy Blake Masters.

After spending over a decade in California cozying up to ultra-radical tech mogul Peter Thiel and his $10 million Super PAC pledge, Masters crossed state lines, set up shop in Arizona, and launched an out-of-touch Senate bid to push his dangerous views on reproductive rights. So far, he’s made it clear he wants to rip away abortion access by:

  • Jeering at the idea of the Supreme Court protecting Arizonans’ rights to make their own health care decisions and insisting that “abortion is not health care.”
  • Celebrating the 2021 six-week abortion ban in Texas — the most extreme anti-choice legislation in the country.
  • Characterizing Roe v. Wade as a “horrible decision,” arguing that it “needs to be repealed yesterday.”
  • Going so far as to suggest that the federal government “has a role to play” in limiting states’ rights to legislate on the issue for themselves and encouraging fellow Republicans to “go on offense” to rip away Arizonans’ reproductive freedom.

“Out-of-state Blake Masters launched a bid for Senate that literally no one but Peter Thiel asked for and is running on an anti-choice agenda that is out of touch with the vast majority of Arizonans,” said ADP spokesperson Hannah Goss. “Perhaps if Masters spent a little less time talking to his billionaire benefactor and a little more time talking to Arizonans, he’d start to understand that he has no business representing this pro-choice state in the Senate.”
