Arizona: GOP Challenger to Sinema Kicks Off Campaign on Sunday

March 15, 2013

Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, a freshman Democrat in one of Arizona’s most competitive districts, will get her first GOP challenger on Sunday.

Retired Air Force Lt. Col. Wendy Rogers emailed supporters earlier this week announcing a St. Patrick’s Day campaign kickoff in Phoenix.

“She will become Arizona’s first Republican congresswoman ever elected,” the invitation read. “Climb aboard to become a part of Arizona history in the making!”

Rogers ran unsuccessfully for the GOP nod in the same district in 2012, along with Paradise Valley Mayor Vernon Parker and businessman Martin Sepulveda. Parker won the nomination but lost to Sinema by 4 points.

The GOP field is expected to be crowded in 2014. In December, Sepulveda indicated to CQ Roll Call he was seriously considering a run for Arizona’s 9th District. Republicans also mentioned former Rep. Ben Quayle, R-Ariz., for the seat a few weeks ago — although sources said his candidacy has become increasingly less likely more recently.
