(PatriotNewsDaily.com) – Abortion is set to play an important role in the Arizona Senate race as the Democrats are attempting to hold on to their slim majority. Abortion rights have been instrumental in the Democrats having several victories over the past year in both purple and red states.
Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-AZ), who is looking to win Sen. Kyrsten Sinema’s (I-AZ) seat, has already been using abortion as one of the key issues that he is using against the Republican candidate, Kari Lake, in the race.
Abortion is only one of the issues that the race in the Grand Canyon State is going to be focused on, however, abortion rights advocates are hopeful that a ballot measure to have abortion rights enshrined in the state constitution will be passed.
Stacy Pearson, a Democratic strategist stated that she believed this would play an important role in next year’s race, especially as Lake is using a rhetoric that is “absolutely insane.” She added that it would be necessary for Lake to find a way to backtrack on this issue if she wanted to have any hope of winning in the next election.
Gallego, as well as other Democrats, have been pointing out that following the overturning of Roe v. Wade, Lake had stated that she was “thrilled” and that there was a great law that they were already working on. This was the 1864 law in Arizona which bans almost all abortions. The law is currently under litigation.
