A Republican congressional candidate says Democratic Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema is just waiting for Senator John McCain to be "carried out on a stretcher" so she can run for his Senate seat.

Wendy Rogers, one of the Republican candidates vying to unseat Sinema in Arizona's Ninth Congressional District, made the comment at a recent meeting of Legislative District 18 Republicans.

"Mark my words, she is Nancy Pelosi Jr.," Rogers said. "And she is waiting for John McCain to be carried out on a stretcher so she can run for his seat. Now that might be eight years from now -- she's a young gal. She's 37. No kids, no grandkids, she's got nothin' else to do but do politics."

We have video of her joke below, and while you can hear some people cracking up over it, not everyone thought it was very funny -- which is why the video was sent to us.



Our source says Rogers had just finished talking about the crisis at the VA medical center in Phoenix, so it didn't exactly make for a good transition.

Rogers, a retired Air Force pilot, lost the Republican nomination by a little more than 700 votes in 2012, in a crowded field of Republican candidates. Sinema ended up defeating Republican Vernon Parker in the general election.

The primary field for Republicans is much thinner this time around in CD9, with just Rogers and former ASU quarterback Andrew Walter currently competing for the chance to take on Sinema.

Me too, I can not wait for McCain to be defeated, retires or gets carried out on a stretcher. As long as McCain goes I'll be happy. McCain completely lost it mentally since his two stunning landslide presidential defeats. He still can not accept the fact that the American people very soundly and overwhelmingly rejected him for the presidency, because he's out of touch, outdated, out of ideas and he's a bitter dangerous, warmongering madman. John McCain is no longer mentally competent to hold public office.

Wendy Rogers still pawns herself off as "Lt. Coronel" Wendy Rogers. Sorry lady, but you are a civilian. Who wants a militarists in Congress? If anything the military budget must be cut and Rodgers will not do that.

When and where did Simema make that remark about McCain? I bet Rogers is lying.

Funny how Schweikert openly declaring he wants McCain's seat is okay with them though! That isn't funny at all and is supposed to be respected.

Hilarious! This is why I like Wendy. I don't agree with her on every issue, but she's got a spine and isn't afraid to say what she means. This is not offensive and people who are acting like is either need to grow up or are simply acting offended in defense of the prada-socialist princess.

Hmm... strange assumption on Wendy's behalf.  Calculating on Kyrsten's behalf.  I mean it's a republican seat.  Mack Daddy is an accused Rhino.  Gotta think like a republican.  That would almost be a transparent transition.  With the exception Kyrsten doesn't have that military mentality.   Mack Daddy has flashes we are Georgians, Libyans, Syrians, Ukrainians, and now with sheer reluctance Nigerians. Wants to bomb Iran.  The guy has C4 for brains and napalm coursing through his veins. Wendy could be stricken with that.  Kyrsten would be a competent vote.

McCain won't be carried off in a stretcher.  He goes to the VA.  Wonder what list he is on.

Wendy Rogers should be able to get advise from the G.O.P. President on how to run a "Vote Siphon" like Mrs. Cortes that was set up as an Election rigging/Manipulating scheme by the current G.O.P. President in his recall election which was a class five felony!

G.O.P. President Russell Pearce should be curently serving two years in jail for his crime!

All Republicans allowing Russell Pearce to be thier "President" are aligned with Racism, Hate, and a CRIMINAL!

With Russell Pearce as thier "President" all Republicans in Arizona are Racist Extremists.

Mrs. Rogers could also contact both G.O.P. Sheriff Arpaio, and his Deputy Stauffer for "Vote Siphon" advise.

To: Justice in Corrupt Arizona?!

With any luck Mr. McCain will be carried off on a stretcher. Sinema's (R) concerns me but she still the best pick. Leaves better than McCain the hypocrite.

We are sheep being shepherded by a pack of coyotes! CAUSE: For decades the "Active Few" are controlling the "Inactive Many" simply because the overwhelming majority of local, county, state and federal elections are decided with less than 50% of eligible voters. CORRECTION: If you haven't, America needs for you to vote...and spread the shout out to family and friends. We may not agree on a political or quality of life issue, but together we will be heard!

I agree Brian both parties work for the same cause have have major issue. However I hav fallowed Sinema and she is pretty clean, not a dirty fighter and has responded to my messages unlike most others in both parties. She's a real average jane trying to care. I like that

The amusing thing about this article is that in Tea Party circles Wendy Rogers is seen by many as a McCainiac. Many Tea Party types don't support her because she is seen as being pro-McCain.

I think Kyrsten Sinema is doing a great job so far. And I didn't vote for her.

@jurywork McCain was in a Vietnamese prison. Makes sense why he went insane. Wendy Rogers, by the way served in the Air Force, and did not go through the insanity McCain did. Synema is an unrpoffesional freak. Wendy Rogers does not have the war mentality of John McCain, who again I repeat is just going insane becuase of his past experiences.

@DonkeyHotay  

I was wondering which would come first in these comments: Somebody calling McCain names, or somebody misinterpreting the headline to mean that Sinema had actually said that she's waiting for him to die.

@danzigsdaddy  "this country has gone drastically downhill and it isnt just the one side or the other doing it. they are both equally guilty"


Well, there's your problem ... political blindness.

@DonkeyHotay heres an observation and a question for you (just my opinion though)

you seem to be looking at both parties and are saying what you feel to be the lesser of 2 evils. i have been re-considering my party and its opposition and am not viewing it as a lesser of 2 evils, but rather am starting to see it as just 2 evils. where you want to settle for what you feel to be the lesser of two evils, i am wanting NO evil to choose from...........is that wrong? 

granted you will have a easier time and better chance of getting a lesser of two evils than i will of not having evil to pick from. i dont want us to have to pick between 2 crooks, i want a honest and respectable and competent leader (yeah, i know, good luck with that pipe dream, right?)

@DonkeyHotay these days its both of our parties doing stuff like that (granted, the Palin move was incredible) so all of us as Americans should be crying over what they are both doing to our country. this country has gone drastically downhill and it isnt just the one side or the other doing it. they are both equally guilty (just my opinion)

danzigsdaddy

@WhoKnows yeah............Sarah "I can see Russia" Palin................that was a defining moment. i got no excuse for him on that one (not even going to make an effort either)
