Retired Air Force pilot Wendy Rogers is the fourth Republican seeking her party’s nomination in Arizona’s newly created 9th Congressional district.

The Arizona Republic reports that Rogers touted her 20-year military career, ownership of a small business and experience as a mother and grandmother in emails over the weekend.

The new district was created after the 2010 census count gave Arizona an additional seat in Congress. It covers north-central and southeast Phoenix and parts of Paradise Valley, Scottsdale, Tempe, Mesa and Chandler.

Other Republicans in the race are Chandler City Councilman Martin Sepulveda, Maricopa County Supervisor Don Stapley and Arizona Air National Guardsman Travis Grantham. Democrats seeking the officer include state Senate minority leader David Schapira, former Arizona Democratic Party Chair Andrei Cherny and former state Sen. Kyrsten Sinema.
