Rogers wins GOP primary for Arizona House seat

PHOENIX (AP) - Retired Air Force pilot Wendy Rogers has won a three-way Republican primary in Arizona's 1st Congressional District.

Rogers beat state Sen. Steve Smith and farmer-attorney Tiffany Shedd in Tuesday's primary.

The seat covers a large portion of Arizona, including the Navajo Nation, Flagstaff and suburbs north of Tucson. It was drawn to be competitive but has leaned Democrat since 2012.
