Wendy Rogers

Arizona Congressional Candidate Advances in the Young Guns Program

WASHINGTON – The National Republican Congressional Committee announced today that Wendy Rogers has reached ‘Young Gun’ status, the top tier of the Committee’s recruitment program. She has reached the ‘Young Gun’ level by establishing a clear path to victory through her ability to build a formidable campaign structure and achieve important goals and benchmarks. Originally founded in the 2007-2008 election cycle by Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA), Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), the Young Guns program supports and mentors challenger and open-seat candidates in races across the country. Rogers is running in Arizona’s 9th Congressional District.

“Our job as a committee is to help elect Republicans to office that will serve as a check and balance on the Obama administration,” said NRCC Chairman Greg Walden. “Wendy has outlined conservative principles that will grow jobs, stop the harmful effects of ObamaCare, and get Washington’s spending under control. Wendy has met a series of rigorous goals that will put her in a position to win on Election Day.”

Wendy Rogers is a 5th generation military officer, spending 20 years in the Air Force and rising to the rank of Lt. Colonel. She was also one of the first 100 female pilots in the Air Force. She is a noted small business owner, running a property inspection company since 1997.

Wendy and her husband, Hal, have been married for 35 years. She has two children and two grandchildren.

Dave is one of three candidates to have received this designation in this election.

“We are extremely pleased to have been designated by the NRCC with the status of ‘On the Radar’ for their ‘Young Guns’ program,” stated Dave Sitton. “This designation is really recognition that we have been prepared, both financially and organizationally, with a plan for winning since day one. And while we met the criteria some weeks ago, we’re pleased to see this recognition now.”

The NRCC issued its own release: “We are looking forward to working with Dave Sitton, who has already proven himself by meeting rigorous benchmarks in the ‘Young Guns’ program that will position his campaign for victory,” said NRCC Chairman Pete Sessions (R-TX). “Dave Sitton’s dedication and experience enables him to advocate effectively for pro-growth policies and fight the failed status quo in Washington. This will stand in stark contrast to the Obama-Pelosi record of spending, borrowing and taxing that Arizona families and small businesses know has failed.”
