The race for state Senate in District 6 is getting bigger. Former Republican Congressional candidate Wendy Rogers has joined the race. Rogers is running on border security, saying her plan is to deploy additional resources to the border, including the National Guard and make sanctuary cities illegal in Arizona. Rogers ran unsuccessfully for Congressional District One, won by Tom O’Halleran, in 2016. Also running for the Republican ticket for state Senate is Representative Bob Thorpe. On the Democratic side, former state legislature candidate Felicia French has said she is entering the state Senate race as well. Current Senator Sylvia Allen has decided not to run for re-election.
