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.

Lt Col (ret) Wendy Rogers was one of the Air Force’s first women pilots. She and and her husband Hal are both retired career US Air Force officers. 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. She and Hal own their retirement home in the midst of where they do business in Flagstaff, Arizona.

Andy Tobin Calls on Gary Kiehne to Exit CD-1 Race

May 19, 2014

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Andy Tobin Calls on Gary Kiehne to Exit CD-1 Race

Andy Tobin released the following statement today in response to comments by Gary Kiehne about Vietnamese-Americans and mass shootings:

“With his pattern of bizarre and deeply offensive remarks, Gary Kiehne has illustrated that he lacks the temperament, character and basic common sense to not only represent Arizona in Congress, but to even get elected. He should exit this race immediately and apologize in full for all of his remarks, not just some of them. To win this district and win against the Democrats in Washington, we need a candidate with a level head – which Mr. Kiehne clearly doesn’t have based on his numerous comments. This is a pattern, and Mr. Kiehne’s own partial apology is acknowledgment of the toxicity of these comments. Suggesting that mass killings are party affiliated is beyond the pale and insulting to the families and victims of these senseless killings. All of this raises the question: What other incendiary remarks has Mr. Kiehne made on tape that Democrats are waiting to release if he’s the nominee?”

“I have every confidence that Republican voters will reject such an offensive candidate. But, if he somehow wins the nomination, Mr. Kiehne will not only ensure Ann Kirkpatrick’s re-election, but he will be an anchor around the neck of every other Republican candidate in the state, from Governor on down.”

Speaker Andy Tobin has a long-record of defending the Second Amendment and fighting for border security. He has an A+ rating from the NRA and helped pass SB1070.

All three of Kiehne’s comments can be viewed here.

Navajo County Supervisor David Tenney Endorses Andy Tobin

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Navajo County Supervisor David Tenney Endorses Andy Tobin

Andy Tobin is the conservative that rural Arizona needs…

Navajo County support continues to rally behind Andy Tobin with Navajo County Supervisor David Tenney’s endorsement today. Tobin has long been a fierce advocate for rural community roads, fire safety, water rights and economic development.

“Andy Tobin is the conservative leader that rural Arizona needs to fight for our practical way of life,” said Navajo County Supervisor David Tenney. “I have spent a lot of time working with Andy to fight for the issues that we care about here in Navajo County, and he has been a champion that gets things done. He has played a key part in the fight to restore much of the money that cities, towns and counties lost from our state’s Highway User Revenue Fund (HURF). As a rural lawmaker he knows that those funds make all the difference to maintaining roads in Navajo County. Andy also understands that Arizona relies heavily on the ability of forest industries to have access to our forests to restore their health, create jobs, reduce threats to our communities, supply clean water, and improve recreation and tourism. He understands that to fuel the rural business of Arizona and to protect our communities from disastrous wildfires, the federal government must use taxpayer resources wisely, and accelerate the success of forest restoration that has taken place in Arizona during the last ten years. Andy has lived in and fought for Arizona since he brought his family here over 30 years ago. He knows rural Arizona, and that is why I endorse Andy Tobin for Congress in Arizona’s 1st Congressional District.”

“Supervisor Tenney is a powerhouse conservative advocate for Navajo County,” said Tobin. “Communities from Kayenta and Holbrook to Show Low have been positively impacted by our relentless fight to restore HURF money. We need to get the EPA off the backs of rural communities who power our state and provide our water. I sincerely thank Supervisor Tenney for his support. Having him on my team will go a long way in Navajo County.”

Few can match his reputation for tax cuts, regulatory reform and tort reform, which have helped spur growth in our economy and made Arizona a much more competitive and attractive state for business. The U.S. Chamber’s endorsement is an acknowledgment of what we in Arizona have known for many years: Andy Tobin will fight tirelessly for jobs and a stronger economy.”

“The United States Chamber of Commerce is a key leader in our fight for economic development and job creation in Arizona,” said Tobin. “I am proud to say that we have made incredible strides to recover jobs, nurture a pro-business environment and attract international companies to Arizona in the past decade. But the work is not done. Having the support of Rob Engstrom, Glenn Hamer and the U.S. Chamber is a valuable resource in my fight to restore more Arizona jobs. When America’s businesses recover and thrive, our country as a whole will return to being an economic leader. I sincerely thank The United States Chamber of Commerce for endorsing my campaign.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Senator Jon Kyl Endorses Andy Tobin for Congress

“Andy Tobin is the battle-tested conservative that rural Arizona needs…”

Citing Tobin’s battle-tested track record of fighting for Arizona’s natural resources, economic development and integrity as a lawmaker, today Senator Jon Kyl endorsed Andy Tobin’s campaign for U.S. Congress. Kyl’s endorsement comes just three days after Republican Presidential Nominee and Governor Mitt Romney endorsed Tobin’s congressional campaign.

Andy Tobin is the battle-tested conservative that rural Arizona needs,” said Senator Jon Kyl. “In a time when strong, experienced, honest and straightforward candidates are hard to come by, Andy stands out. He has been successful in fighting for economic development opportunities, job creation and individual freedoms for Arizonans.”

Senator Kyl continues, “I’m confident Andy will be focused on the needs of Arizona, including our vital natural resources. He understands the relationship between good resource management and rural economic opportunity. Andy has been fighting to shield Arizona from the disastrous ObamaCare law since 2008, and he has fought to protect worker’s right to a secret ballot. He has proven to faithfully represent Arizona’s conservative values. Andy is a tireless worker and my choice for Congressional District One. I hope you will join me in doing all we can to send a fine Arizona conservative to Washington.”

“Senator Kyl and I go back a long way,” said Tobin. “His support for my campaign both energizes and humbles me. We both have a deep appreciation for how much work this type of undertaking requires. We have already logged thousands of miles traveling around the district and hundreds of hours on the phones seeking counsel from supporters, elected officials and grassroots activists. We’ve come a long way in Arizona. Now is the time that we must come together to send a proven conservative with a track record of advocating for Arizona to Washington. I believe that Senator Kyl’s endorsement goes a long way toward achieving our collective goal. I sincerely thank him for his support and confidence.”
