Tempe, AZ – Last week, Lt. Col. (ret) Wendy Rogers’ campaign for Arizona’s new 9th Congressional District filed 993 signatures to secure her spot on the ballot, becoming the first Republican candidate to do so.
“We’ve taken the first steps to putting this country back on the right track,” said Lt. Col. Rogers. “First, I want to send my heartfelt thanks to all my volunteers, my family and friends for their hard work in collecting and vetting all these signatures. It’s not easy work, but we all pulled together and made it look easy.”
But now comes the real test. A crowded field of ten candidates – seven Republicans and three Democrats – qualified for the ballot in CD9. “Now that we’re on the ballot, it’s ‘Game On'”, said Rogers. “Our nation is hanging on the edge of a cliff. Our national debt is threatening to plunge us down the same dark road that Europe is taking, our schools are failing, and even the promises we’ve made to our senior citizens are in jeopardy. It’s time to put aside the phony hope and change and start restoring the promise of our great nation.”
