Arizona State Rep. David Cook Challenges State Sen. Wendy Rogers amid Controversial Election Integrity Stance

State Representative David Cook (R-Globe) is running for the Arizona Senate against incumbent State Senator Wendy Rogers (R-Flagstaff).

Rogers, who raised over $3 million in recent years – the most of any legislative candidate in state history – is widely expected to defeat Cook in the Legislative District 7 (LD 7) primary on July 30.

At the opening of Donald Trump’s campaign office in Casa Grande on Tuesday, Republican National Committee Chair Michael Whatley discussed the GOP’s plans to recruit 100,000 election observers across the country to ensure election integrity in the 2024 election including 5,000 in Arizona.

“What we want to see is a fair, accurate, secure and transparent election cycle. And when we get that, we’re going to feel very comfortable with the results,” Whatley told reporters after the event, according to AZ Central, accompanied by Arizona Republican Party Chair Gina Swoboda. “We want to make sure that we are in the room with observers, with volunteers, with attorneys whenever a vote is being cast and the vote is being counted.”

After the 2022 election, Cook denied that election fraud had occurred. He posted on X, “I realize today my party has been taken over by people that like to yell and scream and blame everyone but themselves for a loss.”
