PHOENIX (AP) - Republican congressional candidate Wendy Rogers will not meet Democratic Rep. Kyrsten Sinema in a televised debate.

Rogers’ campaign staff informed producers for the Arizona PBS show “Arizona Horizon” in an email on Monday morning that she would not be participating in the 5:30 p.m. Monday debate.

Rogers, Sinema and Libertarian Powell Gammill are running for the 9th Congressional District seat that includes Tempe and parts of Scottsdale, Phoenix Chandler and Mesa.

Sinema and Gammill are set to appear for the debate.

Horizon producers said they delayed the debate after Rogers’ campaign said she was unavailable in September. She did participate in a televised debate before the August Republican primary.

Rogers’ campaign spokesman James Harris would not say why Rogers will not attend.
