An opponent of ObamaCare, Ducey signed a bill in April 2015 that would prohibit the enforcement of the Affordable Care Act in Arizona.[4]

Ducey signed SB 1367 into law on March 31, 2017, a "born-alive" bill that would require physicians to care for and protect infants who survive abortions.[5]

An advocate of school choice, Ducey signed into law in April 2017 a bill that would extend school voucher eligibilities to all schoolchildren in Arizona.[6]

After the death of sitting RINO senator John McCain, Ducey appointed former Arizona senator Jon Kyl on September 2018 to fill the seat vacated.[7]

Ducey was easily re-elected to a second term in office in the 2018 Arizona gubernatorial election.[8]

After Kyl announced that he would be stepping down from his brief tenure in the Senate seat, Ducey appointed Martha McSally to succeed Kyl.[9]
