PHOENIX (AP) - Retired Air Force pilot Wendy Rogers has won the GOP primary in the 9th Congressional District.

Rogers beat out former Arizona State and NFL quarterback Andrew Walter. She faces Democratic Rep. Kyrsten Sinema in the general election.

The 9th District covers Tempe and parts of Phoenix.

Rogers was among the first group of women chosen for Air Force pilot training in 1981 and retired with more than 3,000 hours of experience in cargo and transport jets.

She’s now a small business owner who has vowed to repeal the federal Affordable Care Act and balance the budget.
