WASHINGTON DC, October 16, 2014 - Today the Allen West Guardian Fund PAC announced its endorsement of Wendy Rogers for Arizona's 9th Congressional District. Rogers' endorsement is the fourteenth for the 2014 election cycle, meeting the PAC's goal of "14 for '14." Voters in this Republican-leaning district have enthusiastically embraced Rogers' conservative vision.
"Wendy is an exceptional patriot," said Col. West, "She's running to represent the district where the VA scandal first erupted, and you can be certain a battle-hardened veteran like Wendy will fight to get to the bottom of the incompetence and cronyism plaguing not just our VA system, but Washington as a whole. And there is no doubt we need her war fighting experience to help shape an effective strategy against the foreign threats facing our nation."
Rogers joins Carlos Curbelo (FL-26), Martha McSally (AZ-2), Steve Russell (OK-5), Dan Sullivan (AK-Senate), Joni Ernst (IA-Senate), Will Hurd (TX-23), Barry Loudermilk (GA-11), Lee Zeldin (NY-1), Ryan Zinke (MT at Large), Dan Bongino (MD-6), Congressman Tom Cotton (AR-Senate), Larry Kaifesh (IL-8) and Mia Love (UT-4) whom have already been endorsed by the PAC.
A 5th-generation officer in the military, Lt Col Wendy Rogers (RET) spent her career serving America as one of the first 100 women pilots in the U.S. Air Force, rising up through the ranks and continuing a family tradition of service that dates back more than 100 years.
She received her Bachelor's degree from Michigan State and her first of two Master's degrees from the University of Alabama.
Today, Wendy Rogers is a proud mother, devoted wife, and successful businesswoman. With her husband, Hal, she operates one of Arizona's top-rated property inspection companies, having provided well over 100 jobs over the past 16 years.
The Allen West Guardian Fund was established in January 2013 as a PAC to support conservative military veteran and minority Republicans running for state and federal office. The leadership PAC Colonel West established during the 2012 election cycle with the same mission helped 7 military veteran candidates win their seats in the House of Representatives, and played an important part in the run-off election in Arizona's 9th district.
