Arizona State Senate candidate Rogers compares herself to Kenosha gunman

“I am used to being attacked by the far, far, far Left. Happens to me a lot,” said Rogers in a fundraising appeal for the District 6 state Senate seat, which includes all of Rim Country, Flagstaff, the Verde Valley and the White Mountains. “That’s what happens when you stand and fight for what’s right, especially this year. It happened to Kyle Rittenhouse, it happened to Senator Rand Paul, and now the extreme Left is doing it to me.”

The appeal comes in the midst of escalating violence at protests. Shortly after Rittenhouse killed the two protestors a Black Lives Matter supporter shot and killed a counter-protester in Portland. He was subsequently shot and killed by police.

Rogers, a retired pilot and Phoenix businesswoman, defeated longtime Republican state senator Sylvia Allen in a bitter primary. She’s now facing off against Democrat Felicia French in the swing district. French is a retired Army colonel, nurse and medivac helicopter pilot.

Roger’s comments about Rittenhouse mirror tweets by Congressman Paul Gosar saying that Rittenhouse acted in self-defense when he shot and killed two protesters.

Rittenhouse traveled to a Black Lives Matter demonstration in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Those protests took place after police serving a warrant on a black suspect shot him in the back seven times — partially paralyzing him.

1. She's nuts and a perennial loser

She's made multiple runs at Congress, losing to Sinema and O'Halloran. Now she's set her sights lower for state senate. She knocked off an incumbent.
I suspect she's probably QAnon...
