In today’s special bonus episode, host and NewDEAL CEO Debbie Cox Bultan speaks with Arizona Corporation Commissioner Anna Tovar about last week’s state Supreme Court ruling to resurrect an 1864 near-total abortion ban. Commissioner Tovar gives us an on-the-ground report of the ruling and the fallout in Arizona, including the decision led by extremist Republicans in the state legislature to block an appeal of the draconian law. They also talk about a recent poll conducted by NewDEAL showing that a strong majority of Arizonans believe that the government should protect reproductive rights and, by a large margin, believe that Democrats, more than Republicans, are working to protect the basic freedoms that are important to them. Tovar tells us what the ruling means for Arizona’s election this November, including a potential ballot measure to enshrine abortion rights in the state constitution and the fate of two Arizona Supreme Court justices who are on the ballot. Tune in to hear Tovar talk about the work happening on the ballot measure and find more information on our polling at
