Colonel Wendy Rogers Shatters Own Record with Q2 Fundraising

Wendy Rogers

(Flagstaff, AZ) – Lt Col (ret) Wendy Rogers demonstrated impressive momentum in her second quarter fundraising. Rogers raised nearly $210,000 from a diverse group of nearly 500 total donors. She also has over $275,000 cash on hand as the August Primary Election approaches.

“We are winning. Our momentum builds daily. We’ve drawn increasing support from all over the country because voters want more operational military veterans in Congress. National security and the border are prime concerns,” Rogers stated. “Hardworking Americans vote for me with donations to make America great again,” she said.

Last week, two sisters of Colonel Rogers’ opponent, Paul Babeu, endorsed Rogers. Both Lucy Babeu and Veronica Babeu Keating went public in their support for Rogers as they criticized their brother, Paul Babeu, for being unfit to hold office. The Babeu sisters continue to release documents and video footage which expose their brother for having lied about his role as head of a Massachusetts boarding school that eventually was shuttered due to multiple reports of child abuse. In January, Colonel Rogers demanded that Sheriff Paul Babeu drop out of the race when new video footage surfaced.

Since 1997, they’ve owned a home inspection business covering four counties spanning northern to southern Arizona. Colonel Rogers is a businesswoman, teacher, social worker, mother and grandmother.

Another Babeu Sister Endorses Colonel Wendy Rogers For Congress

(Flagstaff, AZ) – Today, Veronica Babeu Keating joined her sister, Lucy Babeu, to endorse Lt Col (ret) Wendy Rogers, in the race for the Republican nomination in Arizona’s First Congressional District. Veronica Babeu Keating and Colonel Rogers released the following statements regarding Veronica’s endorsement:

Veronica Babeu Keating’s Statement on Endorsing Lt Col Wendy Rogers:

“Getting involved in a political campaign was not something I ever saw myself doing,” said Veronica Babeu Keating. “Especially one involving my brother Paul. However, the stakes are too high. I just had to take a stand to do the right thing,” she continued.

“I admire my sister Lucy for coming forward to speak out against our brother – – to finally stand up to him. Paul thinks only of himself and his political career at the expense of others. He does not care about the people whom elected officials are called to serve. As his siblings, Lucy and I know firsthand how unfit he is to serve. The people of Arizona must know, too.

“Arizona deserves and must demand the best from its leaders. That is why I am very proud to join my sister in endorsing Colonel Wendy Rogers to be the next congresswoman to represent Arizona’s First Congressional District,” Veronica Babeu Keating concluded.

Lt Col Wendy Rogers’ Statement Upon Receiving the Endorsement:

“I am honored to have the endorsements of Veronica Babeu Keating and Lucy Babeu. Arizonans across the district continue to unite behind our campaign because they want their candidate to take the fight to the Democrat nominee in November and actually win.”

Lucy Babeu Endorses Colonel Wendy Rogers for Congress

(Flagstaff, AZ) – Thursday, Lucy Babeu, sister of congressional candidate Paul Babeu, announced her endorsement of his opponent in the race, Lt Col (ret) Wendy Rogers.  Lucy Babeu and Lt Col Rogers released the following statements regarding the endorsement:

Lucy Babeu’s Statement on Endorsing Lt Col Wendy Rogers:

“I have always believed there are three things which should be held dear and above all else – God, country, family – in that order,” said Lucy Babeu. “Unfortunately, my brother, Paul Babeu, has not lived up to honoring those same principles,” she continued. “The decisions my brother, Paul, has made throughout his life are not the makings of someone who represents the values of our congressional district, our state, or our country – and I cannot sit idly by in good faith.”

“It is not an easy thing to go against family, but it is the right thing to do, because I must put the good of our country first. In this campaign, I firmly believe that the right choice for Arizona and our country is Colonel Wendy Rogers. Colonel Rogers is a person of immense character, who has served our country honorably as a career officer in our Armed Forces, and will do so in Washington, D.C. as our representative of Arizona’s 1st Congressional District,” Babeu concluded.

Lt Col Wendy Rogers’ Statement Upon Receiving the Endorsement:

“I welcome the endorsement of Lucy Babeu. We are a campaign built upon a broad base of voters from all walks of life who have one goal in mind – to strengthen our nation and serve the people of Arizona.”

(Gilbert, AZ) – Tonight, conservative business leader Christine Jones participated in a live televised debate sponsored by Phoenix PBS affiliate, KAET TV-8. Following the debate, Jones released the following statement:

“This was an important debate for citizens of the district to see because it showed a clear contrast between a proven conservative business leader and individuals who have spent their careers working in politics.

Christine Jones Releases New Campaign Ad, ‘Overreach’

Christine Jones for Congress

(Gilbert, AZ)Tuesday, conservative business leader Christine Jones released another campaign commercial in her congressional race to win the GOP nomination in Arizona’s Fifth Congressional District. This marks the second ad the campaign has released in less than a month.

The ad, titled “Overreach,” reminds viewers that ineffective career politicians have failed to stop President Obama’s outrageous and overreaching executive actions. Jones then makes the case for sending a conservative outsider to fix Washington’s problems.

“This ad captures everything that’s wrong with Washington,” said Jordan Ray, campaign manager for the Christine Jones campaign. “Sending more political insiders and career politicians will not solve these problems. Sending a conservative business leader like Christine Jones is the only way we’ll be able to effectively fight ISIS, fix immigration and balance the budget,” Jordan Ray added.
