Wendy Rogers will face Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema in the general election.
Three of the four competitive primary elections among Arizona's congressional districts have been decided early.

Former state Representative Ruben Gallego has defeated Mary Rose Wilcox in Congressional District 7's Democratic primary, to replace retiring Democratic Congressman Ed Pastor.

While votes are still coming in, retired Air Force pilot Wendy Rogers has opened a huge lead on former ASU and NFL quarterback Andrew Walter in the Republican primary in Congressional District 9. Rogers will take on Democratic Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema in November.

Rogers finished second in the 2012 primary in the district. The Republican nomination was won by Vernon Parker that year, and Parker's currently on course to lose his election bid this year, in which he's sought a seat on the Arizona Corporation Commission.

In southern Arizona, there's going to be a rematch between Democratic Congressman Ron Barber and Republican challenger Martha McSally in Congressional District 2. McSally had more than three times the votes of the nearest Republican challenger when about half of the voting precincts had been counted.

There's only one congressional primary that remains to be decided, and that's in Congressional District 1. There are three Republicans vying to face Democratic Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick, and that Republican primary may not be decided tonight.

As of 9:30 p.m., with fewer than half the precincts in, former Arizona House Speaker Andy Tobin led businessman Gary Kiehne by fewer than 50 votes. Former state Representative Adam Kwasman remains within 2,000 votes.

Anybody except the yapping, flip flopping talking wig on a stick. I am not overly wild about Wendy either, but Kyrsten needs to go!

The only thing Sinema should have in a bag is her head. Yapping, flip flopping talking wig on a stick, that's Sinema all the way!

We need honest elected reps in Arizona. I wish we could get rid of dishonest Trent Franks in District 8...

The last thing District 9 needs is a former military person. Rogers, a serial candidate, is so pro everything military she will help bankrupt the country. Anyone who is supported by Sal "the Snake' DiCiccio needs to be looked at very closely. The Snake is a very dubious person and is only out for his personal monetary gain.

NONE OF THE ABOVE gets my vote. I will never vote for another member of the 2 major political parties. Their greed and corruption has ruined this nation. I hope they all get assassinated.

Wendy Rogers will be a welcome change to Sinema who has been disgustingly worthless to our community. I consider Sinema to be a leech, sucking the blood from our area.

@salmo60 Sinema was a "serial" two loss candidate before she was ever elected to anything. Now Sinema is a 10 year professional politician.
