A full text of her speech is below:
“Good afternoon, I’m Wendy Rogers . . . a conservative Republican.
I come to you now, running the race to serve as your congresswoman for Arizona’s 1st Congressional District . . . in Sedona, home of our current Democrat congressman.
Thanks to President Trump, our nation, and its economy are reviving. Yet there is more to do and I want to help!
We must repeal Obamacare for the sake of our nation’s health and resolve illegal immigration, which threatens national security. We must build the Wall and end sanctuary cities once and for all. Respect for the rule of law has eroded. Our nation’s very identity and history are under attack, with liberals trying to erase Columbus, Washington, and Jefferson.
It’s up to us to protect the most vulnerable – our unborn and the elderly; as well as our very own families with our God-given right to keep and bear arms under the 2nd Amendment. Our strained, but steadfast, military is our last bulwark. America’s veterans are precious. I swore my life’s oath to secure the United States against “all enemies, foreign and domestic”. I will do this again as your congresswoman.
As a 5th generation career military officer, I was privileged to serve as one of the Air Force‘s first women pilots. I’m now a successful business entrepreneur.
Our district voted for Donald Trump, who is turning things around. Now though, more than ever, we must send public servants to Congress who will support our president. This is why I’m going on offense to take back this seat for America.
I run for the same reasons I joined the Air Force – to serve my country, and to fight for our way of life and the ideals we hold so dear.
Join me on this campaign. Help me restore our republic. I ask for your vote.
I’m Colonel Wendy Rogers, signing off for now. On to victory.”
Wendy Rogers is a retired Air Force officer who attained the rank of Lt. Col., became one of the U.S. military’s first female pilots, is an entrepreneur and homeschool mom.
