Mostly Ban. Has signed restrictions requiring doctors to ask if abortion is related to rape, incest, or domestic violence; telling patients that effect of abortion pills can be undone; & banning use of Obamacare exchanges for abortion insurance.
Criticizes money in politics but specific position unclear. Has pledged not to take money from lobbyists or corporate PACS & returned $7,000 to donors identified as lobbyists.

Mixed. Increased funding distributions from state land trust through Prop 123, though this erodes long-term reserves. Opposed initiative funding education by taxing individuals earning over $250,000 a year.
Mixed. Cut college funding by $99 million in 2015. Increased by $32 million in 2016-2017, including $5 million for Koch Brothers-founded “economic freedom schools.” Ended all state aid to Maricopa & Pima County community college systems.
Somewhat. Revoke firearm permits of those convicted of violent offenses. Has not sought to restrict assault weapons.
