The Arizona Mirror reports:
After the U.S. Supreme Court overturns women’s constitutional right to abortion this summer, one Arizona Republican candidate for U.S. Senate thinks judges should also take aim at the right to buy and use contraception.
Blake Masters, a Tucson-based venture capitalist, boasts on his website that he will only vote to confirm federal judges “who understand that Roe and Griswold and Casey were wrongly decided, and that there is no constitutional right to abortion.”
Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, decided in 1973 and 1992, respectively, both upheld a constitutional right to abortion access. But the ruling in Griswold v. Connecticut in 1965 protected a married couple’s right to buy and use contraceptives without government restrictions.

Like J.D. Vance in Ohio, Masters’ campaign is funded by homocon billionaire Peter Thiel. Masters, 35, is his former employee.
Yesterday Masters accepted the endorsement of Marjorie Taylor Greene.
Trump has not yet made an endorsement in the race, but last week he called into Masters’ campaign rally.
