Please see update on Doug Ducey and others joining the chorus of condemnation below.

Republican candidate for Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich issued a statement on Sunday condemning remarks made by the Arizona GOP's first vice chair Russell Pearce, in which Pearce proposed the coerced sterilization of female Medicaid recipients.

Calling the remarks "cruel" and "unrepresentative" of the Arizona Republican Party, Brnovich likened Pearce's comments to the "horrors of communism," noting that his mother fled communist Yugoslavia in the 1950s.
